Madigan Decision to Seek Re-Election Roils Dems
State Sen. Kwame Raoul had been considering running for attorney general if Madigan didn't seek re-election. He says now that he's not sure if he'll seek another office instead or run for re-election.
The Chicago lawmaker says he first has to deal with Illinois' biggest financial problem. Raoul chairs a panel charged with addressing the state's nearly $100 billion pension crisis.
Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon had also been considering a run for attorney general, along with other statewide offices.
Campaign manager Dave Mellet says Simon will make a decision soon. He says state comptroller is among the offices she's eyeing.
