Whitney faced incumbent Pat Quinn (D), Bill Brady (R), Lex Green (L), and Scott Lee Cohen (I) in the general election on November 2, 2010.

In late fall 2010, Whitney was trailing the GOP’s Bill Brady and incumbent Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn in every statewide poll.[2]

The Chicago Sun Times reported that Whitney's name was spelled Whitey on ballots in 23 wards in Chicago, half of which are predominantly African-American areas[3].

Whitney held a press conference on October 13th to demand he be invited to appear in three debates that Gov. Quinn and GOP candidate Bill Brady were participating in. Video of the conference is here:
