Democratic wants to schedule debate time with Gov. Pat Quinn.

Democratic candidate Tio Hardiman issues a challenge to Governor Pat Quinn, calling for a series of debates ahead of the March primary.

Hardiman, the former head of the anti-violence group, Ceasefire, says his staff has reached out to the Quinn campaign.

Hardiman suggested the debates be held in East St. Louis, Springfield, Decatur and in Cook County, saying the people of Illinois 'deserve it.'

''I want to challenge Quinn on all his failed policies, then I want to present my solutions to lead the state out of this dilemma that the state is in now, '' Hardiman said.

ABC 7 Chicago was unable to reach anyone from Governor Quinn's campaign for a response.
