SPRINGFIELD -- A new poll shows Republican Bill Brady leading in the race for Illinois governor.

Brady, a state senator from Bloomington, was favored by 38.4 percent of respondents, compared to 29.8 percent for Democratic incumbent Pat Quinn. That lead of 8.6 points is well outside the poll's margin of error of 3.5 points.

The poll found independent Scott Lee Cohen at 5.9 percent and Green Party candidate Rich Whitney at 2.2 percent.

The telephone poll was conducted Sept. 30 to Oct. 10 for Southern Illinois University's Paul Simon Institute.

Other recent polls have shown a tighter race for governor.
