On Monday the Speaker of the House – Mike Madigan announced that he was suspending his campaign for Speaker – that is not to be considered a total with-drawl from running.


He’s on pause to see if House Democrats can find a lawmaker to back with 60 votes.


Governor JB Pritzker says it’s the house’s responsibility to select who will lead.



House Democrat Kelly Cassidy says in a statement “The Speakers’ decision to suspend his campaign is an opportunity for us to come together as Democrats and carve a new path forward.”
