Does Lisa Madigan have a race on her hands?
A new poll looking at the contest for Illinois Attorney General shows the Democratic incumbent leading her Republican opponent Paul Schimpf by just 9 percentage points.
The poll was paid for by Schimpf, a retired Marine and newcomer to Illinois politics. But the numbers suggest that Madigan’s overall popularity with voters may be starting to erode.
