Earlier this week, Gov. Pat Quinn stepped into the controversy, saying he was against the mosque being built near the site of the 9/11 terror attack.
Christina Abraham, of CAIR, believes Quinn’s stand will cost him votes in November.
“The 400,000 Muslims in the Chicago area know about this issue. They’re concerned about this issue and it will affect how they make their decision come election time. He’s lost my vote,” said Abraham.
