Lisa Madigan is not running for Illinois governor.  She’ll seek a fourth term as state Attorney General, instead.  Madigan was considered a front-runner for a possible bid for governor next year but recent polls reveal she may have had a tough road ahead.  Some voters said they wouldn’t have voted for her unless her dad, House Speaker Michael Madigan, stepped down.  

Madigan says that was a major factor in her decision.  And, she says she won’t run for governor as long as her dad is in office.
