Blagojevich Defense Lawyer Running For Illinois Attorney General

One of the defense attorneys for Rod Blagojevich during the former governor’s corruption trial is running for Illinois attorney general.

State Senator Kwame Raoul and State Representative Scott Drury have also declared they’re running for the open seat.
