CHICAGO -- Gov. Pat Quinn says Texas Gov. Rick Perry's visit to try to entice businesses away from Illinois is merely "an escapade" and Illinois can compete with any state.
The Chicago Democrat took some jabs at Perry, who's in Illinois this week to try to lure jobs back to his home state.
On Tuesday, Quinn called the Texas Republican a "big talker" and pointed out his previous presidential campaign gaffes. Quinn says Perry didn't do well in the presidential campaign and he won't do well in Illinois.
Both governors were scheduled to speak Tuesday at a bioscience convention in Chicago.
