Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn’s re-election campaign is getting an out-of-state boost.

Quinn flew to Los Angeles late last week for a fundraiser attended by actors and others in the movie industry. Quinn campaign spokeswoman Leslie Wertheimer confirmed Monday that Quinn was in Los Angeles for the fundraiser. She said a similar one was thrown in his honor in 2013.

Quinn has kept a low-profile on the campaign trail so far. He faces one lesser-known Democratic challenger on March 18. Activist Tio Hardiman of suburban Hillside is running.
