LMadiganIllinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she is still “very seriously considering” running for governor in 2014.
Madigan spoke to reporters Tuesday, after former White House chief of staff Bill Daley announced he’ll challenge Gov. Pat Quinn in a Democratic primary.
Madigan is a Chicago Democrat and the daughter of powerful House Speaker Michael Madigan. She hasn’t indicated when she might announce her plans.
