A former Marine is planning to run against Attorney General Lisa Madigan. 42 year old Republican Paul Schimpf of Waterloo plans to make a formal announcement of his plans next week. He retired from the Marine Corp this spring after 24 years of service. He was a lieutenant colonel. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy and the Marines sent him to law school at Southern Illinois University.
Schimpf believes Madigan has fallen short on some key issues and believes that he can do a better job.
