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.
