House Speaker Michael Madigan says Chris Kennedy, the son of the late Robert F. Kennedy, would be an "excellent candidate" after Kennedy spoke to the Illinois delegation at the Democratic National Convention.
Tuesday night at the convention, Kennedy attacked Gov. Bruce Rauner, blaming Rauner for the lack of a complete budget.
He was also critical of Rauner's efforts to curb the power of unions. However, Kennedy is not addressing speculation that he's interested in the state's top office.
