Madigan Says No to a Run for Governor or US Senate
Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she's not running for Illinois governor or senator because she wants to "continue doing the job that I love.''
In a statement Wednesday, the Chicago Democrat said she will seek a third term at state's attorney. That dramatically changes the political landscape in Illinois.
Madigan had been considering a run for higher office. A long list of politicians were waiting to learn her decision before announcing their own plans. Madigan's statement gives few details about her decision to stay put, beyond saying she enjoys a job that lets her watch out for consumers, protect women and children and more.
