The Republican challenging Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she's not doing enough to fight corruption.
Paul Schimpf is running on this campaign slogan: "Trust a Retired Marine, Not the Madigan Machine!" A reference not only to Attorney General Lisa Madigan, but also to her father -- House Speaker and head of the state Democratic Party, Michael Madigan.
Schimpf says both are part of a political class that has proven it can't police itself.
Lisa Madigan will NOT run for Illinois governor next year. The state’s Attorney General announced today she has been considering a run for governor for months, but decided to stick with her current job.
The Illinois Attorney General's office says an elected official in northern Illinois has to decide between two jobs. But Ted Biondo won't give up any elected seat while state lawmakers consider changing a law that would make it legal for him to hold two offices.
