Lisa Madigan brings in big names for her big fundraiser

May 4th, 2017

Lisa Madigan’s “Lead, Women, Lead” annual campaign fundraiser packed the house at Maggiano’s on Monday. (Check out some names in the photo, above)

The state’s attorney general tells me she wants to make sure we have resources necessary to mount a campaign for re-election. “It costs more and more money to get your message out and you have to be prepared because you never know what’s going to happen.”

Was she pointing to national or state politics? Maybe both.

She also had a few things to say about the state’s budget impasse–caused in part by her dad. Do they talk about it at family gatherings? Read the details in my Taking Names column in the Chicago Sun-Times.
