* Press release…
State Representative Eva-Dina Delgado of Illinois’ 3rd District will not support Speaker Madigan for re- election.
Representative Delgado issued the following statement today:
“The ongoing allegations surrounding Speaker Madigan have become a distraction from the important work before us during these unprecedented times. Therefore, I will not be supporting Speaker Madigan in his run for reelection as the Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives. Our state has some serious issues to address and now is the time for new leadership.”
You will recall that Speaker Madigan warned he would initiate proceedings to kick Delgado out of the House if she was appointed to the seat earlier this year. That effort went nowhere, and now Madigan himself is facing the same sort of process.
