Top Illinois politicians have spent the last several days doing more than just celebrating President Obama’s second inauguration.
They’ve also been assessing their own chances for the next big election in 2014.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan made her biggest statement yet about a possible Democratic primary challenge to Governor Pat Quinn, telling ABC News Chicago that she is considering whether there are ways she can be of greater service to the state.
And Republican Congressman Aaron Schock continues testing the waters for a possible run, saying that he is a candidate who could win in a general election.
As for Quinn… he says there is a time to talk politics, but this isn’t the time.
