Illinois State Fair: One of a kind event

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Illinois State Fair is well underway, and with that comes all the contests and confections from the Midway.

The Republican candidate for Illinois governor, Bruce Rauner, placed a winning bid on a champion steer at the event. The auction was hosted by Rauner's Nov. 4 election rival, Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn.

The purebred Hereford steer was raised by 11-year-old exhibitor Braden Musgrave. It sold for $56,300. Rauner's campaign says the steer will be donated to the University of Illinois' College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences.
