Illinois Races: Lisa Madigan for Attorney General

Democratic incumbent has no internal opponents



    Incumbent Attorney General Lisa Madigan won’t have to worry about facing any opponents within the Democratic Party. The 43-year-old mother of two has held the position since 2002. Before that, she served a term as state senator between 1998 and 2002. A Georgetown University alum, Madigan received her law degree from Loyola University Law School.

    A major campaign fundraiser, Madigan ripped her competition in 2002, when she managed to collect more than $10.7 million. In 2008, Madigan raised $2.7 million, most of which came from real-estate companies and labor unions.
