Lisa Madigan getting closer to Illinois governor run: Big fund-raiser March 18

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, I'm told, now is very close to deciding to run for governor in 2014, where she would face Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and possibly former White House Chief of Staff/Commerce Secretary Bill Daley in a Democratic primary.

Madigan has a major fund-raiser set for March 18 at Wildfire, 159 W. Erie, with the price tiers running from $1,000 to $5,000. The theme is to mark her 10 years as Illinois' attorney general -- and all her accomplishments.

In Washington recently, Madigan met with the League of Conservation Voters and her political chief, Gina Natale, huddled with Emily's List.
