A relatively unknown challenger to Gov. Pat Quinn believes he has a shot at pulling off an upset in next week’s primary.

Tio Hardiman is pointing at a recent opinion poll that shows unexpectedly strong support for his cash-strapped campaign. While he’s still polling well behind Quinn, Hardiman thinks he’ll have a chance on Tuesday if the media now take his candidacy seriously.

“There’s no excuse for the media to keep giving Gov. Quinn a pass, and not force him to have a debate with Tio Hardiman,” Hardiman said, “because we’re actually gaining numbers every day. We can only go up in the polls now. We can only go up—all the way.”

Hardiman believes there’s real support for his campaign, and not just from Democrats willing to get behind anyone who isn’t Quinn. He claims his website is outperforming all other candidates, including those running for the Republican nomination.
