9:03 pm
that you've been voted in rather than just being appointed after the impeachment of blagojevich? >> i assumed office under our constitution. getting sworn in of january of last year was a high honor. but being elected by the people of illinois was special. it's a privilege and i know it's a responsibility. it's a mission. and we have to make our state as good as it can be. it starts with jobs. we need more. and we have to invest in education. i feel that's the best way to get jobs. >> tonight, can you tell us how you are going to get jobs? >> we created more jobs than any other state in the midwest. we had chrysler declare an investment in our state. boeing will be manufacturing airplanes. we've got to grow our economy both large businesses and small. then education is the key. our community colleges are key to our workers having the skills they need for the 21st century economy. >> last night sat down with governor daniels in indiana who
9:04 pm
is exalting over his new majority in the legislature. you had a majority before the election. lots of things didn't get done because there was not enough cooperation. what would make the citizens believe now that things would be different? >> well, i think we have challenges that we must face. we can't -- we have to squarely address them. we can't avoid them. i think members of both parties, both houses have to square up to the real realities that we have. we have to invest in education. we've got to balance the budget. we have to create jobs in our state and the only way to do it is for people to do hard things. >> i talked to some voters who say i like the man pat quinn, i have questions about his management capability in handling the powers in the house and in the senate. what do you say to that? >> yes got strong ethics laws passed. i was the one that got that done. we passed a job recovery bill last year that took 3/5 of both
9:05 pm
houses to pass. me passed public pension reform. we have a lot of other things to pass and i'm going get it done. i think people underestimate me. they did in this campaign. but the people voted for us and that's what counts in a democracy. >> you have been criticized for not standing up to speaker of the house mike madigan. >> he wasn't for recall. he ultimately claim around on ethics matter. i don't like kicking people in the shins. i get along with mike madigan. i get along with everybody. i think we have civility and decency and there's no such thing as republican jobs or democratic jobs. there are illinois jobs. i want to be the jobs governor. i want to build things, make things that help people get back to work. >> i heard from social groups and school districts that were frustrated because they're owed millions by the state. were hurt to see you in the last month cutting ribbons finding new money for different projects that maybe looked good

9:07 pm
the common good. that's what i believe in all my life. >> in the 15 seconds we have, is it true you gathered more down state union votes than perhaps you expected and the brady camp expected? when they didn't think they'd do as well as they did there? >> illinois is one state. we're not quited -- divided into two or three states. everybody in, nobody left out. that's my philosophy. and i enjoy visiting every part of illinois. >> congratulations. >> will you come back and talk to us in about six months? >> yes. i'm a believer. >> tell us what you think. do you think the governor's plan to get the state out of the financial crisis is confident? text yes or no to 97999 or go to tom negovan is live sorting out where everyone stands now

9:09 pm
consensus. >> reporter: but that may not quite be true. so far chicago's african- american power brokers have backed former senator karen mosley braun. and rogers has their finalists. now comes word of decent in the ranks that danny davis or another candidate may unilaterally decide to make a run. then there's rahm emanuel. undeclared but raising money, campaigning, and weighing in on key issues like the search for a new head of chicago public schools. issuing a statement on that today on the kind of leader he'd pick. one who'd improve student performance. while his opponent declared -- is asking the leaders meeting here on the south side tonight not to pick the best black candidate, but the best candidate. >> i'll say this: that if the leadership of the african- american community won't have me, then i will take my case directly to the citizens
