Springfield – Several Democratic candidates for State Attorney General hold a forum in Springfield to discusses their respective agendas and their solutions to issues such as state pension debt, illegal immigration, and criminal justice reform.
This forum was organized by the Democratic County Chairmen’s organization, and by Springfield radio station, WMAY. The station’s anchor, Jim Leach, is the moderator.
Note: Due to weather conditions in Chicago and the resulting traffic jams that followed, Rep Scott Drury arrived very late for the forum, and Sen Kwame Raoul was unable to arrive in time to participate. In fact, Sen Raoul was very late in arriving at his own campaign reception held after this event, so his lack of participation in this forum, was not intentional.
