Embattled House Speaker Michael Madigan says he’ll be a candidate for reelection in January, claiming ‘significant support’ – Chicago Tribune

Madigan made the statement only two days after his longtime friend, lobbyist Michael McClain, was indicted in the ComEd bribery case. Also indicted were Anne Pramaggiore, a former top ComEd and Exelon official; ex-ComEd lobbyist John Hooker; and former local ComEd consultant Jay Doherty, the former head of the City Club.
