Two Democrats have announced that they would seek the Democratic Party nomination for Illinois Attorney General, but one of them is not McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks.
The first out of the box was State Rep. Scott Drury.
Drury is the Democrat that made bold moves in the Illinois House that Jack Franks followed.
Drury is a former Assistant U.S. Attorney with the guts to vote against Mike Madigan for House Speaker.
For inexplicable reasons he was running for the Democratic Party nomination for Governor before Lisa Madigan announced that she was not running for a fifth term.
Drury says Lisa Madigan has done a good job on the civil side, but not on the criminal side of the office.
State Sen. Kwame Raoul was the second to announce.
He was an Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney before taking Barack Obama’s State Senate seat in 2004.
Raoul also gave credit to Madigan for her civil law activity and said he would do more on the criminal side.
The Republican candidate is Harvard Law School graduate Erika Harold.
