SPRINGFIELD – As of today, five Democrats – including a former governor – want to succeed retiring Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan in 2018. 

The Democrats thus far include former Governor Pat Quinn, Illinois lawmakers Scott Drury, Kwame Raoul and Nancy Rotering and former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti. 

The only Republican having filed is attorney Erika Harold – a conservative backed by Governor Rauner. 

AG Madigan – who is Illinois House Speaker and Illinois Democrat Party Chairman Mike Madigan's daughter – has been the state's attorney general since 2003.
