This statement is in response to today’s slating decision by the Cook County Democratic Party’s Central Committee.

CHICAGO – November 3, 2017 – “Today’s decision by the Cook County Democratic Party to slate a fellow political insider is disappointing – but sadly, not surprising.

“Throughout my career, I have been a staunch advocate for transparency and openness in government. I will continue to do so as Attorney General.

“This is going to be a competitive race, and I have every confidence in our supporters and our campaign. I look forward to winning the Democratic nomination on March 20th and being elected as Attorney General next November.”
