The decision by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan to seek re-election may have put a cramp into the plans of at least two Democratic politicians — state Sen. Kwame Raoul and Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon.
Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon is supporting a bill that would allow medical marijuana in Illinois. Simon tells The Associated Press she changed her mind on the issue after hearing from people with illnesses. The bill has passed the state House and awaits a vote in the Senate.
