CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says he's "heartbroken" about the death of state Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka.

Topinka died early Wednesday after suffering a stroke. The Democratic Quinn called longtime Republican Topinka "a trailblazer in every sense of the word." Quinn remembered Topinka's "signature sense of humor" and says he lost a friend who will be "incredibly missed."
