The current attorney general Lisa Madigan is not running for re-election, and there are eight Democrats and two Republicans in the race. The primary is on March 20.
Here’s how we did this. We asked all the candidates more or less the same questions, like a job interview. We also recorded these in advance to give no one an unfair advantage - and, they’re airing in random order over the next few weeks.
Today, we’re hearing from Aaron Goldstein. He’s a supervising attorney with the Cook County Public Defender’s Office. He’s also a committeeman in Chicago’s 33rd Ward, on the city’s north side. He’s one of eight Democrats running for Attorney General.
