Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan is seeking his 46th year in office to represent Chicago's southwest side.
Speaker Madigan proudly announced the endorsement of Cook County Commissioner Jesus Chuy Garcia - who lost his campaign for Chicago mayor last year.
But Garcia won in a lot of Latino areas in that race - and Madigan’s district has a large Latino population.
Garcia says he’s endorsing Madigan for one big reason.
GARCIA: The Speaker of the House has been standing up to the governor.
That’s Republican Governor Bruce Rauner.
