Madigan might be succeeded on an interim foundation by the social gathering’s first vice chair, Prepare dinner County Clerk Karen Yarbrough. In response to the assertion, the social gathering’s 36-member central committee should meet inside 30 days to pick a brand new chairman.
Celebration insiders mentioned two members of the committee have signaled they’re focused on searching for the job: U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly of Matteson and Chicago Ald. Michelle Harris, eighth. Yarbrough reportedly isn’t focused on getting the job completely.
One committee member I spoke with who requested to not be named mentioned Gov. J.B. Pritzker is making an attempt to drum up assist for Harris. Curiously, Harris not too long ago turned Metropolis Council ground chief for Mayor Lori Lightfoot, with whom Pritzker has jostled now and again.
Kelly has her personal benefits. She’s run statewide (for Illinois treasurer), served within the Illinois Home and has nationwide fund-raising connections from her place within the U.S. Home.
A 3rd committee member who had been focused on operating, Prepare dinner County Board of Overview member Mike Cabonargi, has dominated out a race, sources near him say.
