Bennett on WDWS: I'm not running for attorney general

Local state senator Scott Bennett said he's not interested in running for attorney general.

The Democrat Bennett, who is an attorney, said several people asked him about the job after the recent announcement that incumbent Democrat Lisa Madigan would not be running for re-election.

Bennett called that announcement a surprise.

Several candidates from both sides of the aisle say they are running for attorney general.  That includes Urbana Republican Erika Harold.

Bennett should actually try running for a lower office first.   Right now, he only has experience at having a job given to him.
