Lisa Madigan not running for governor


The race for Illinois governor won't include a bid from the attorney general.

Lisa Madigan announced she won't run for the state's top seat. She said she decided against entering the race because her father, House Speaker Michael Madigan, wants to keep his job.

Former White House Chief of Staff, Democrat Bill Daley, says he still plans to unseat Governor Quinn. Quinn did not comment.
