As candidates continue to position in preparation for the start of the Primary race this Fall, a question remains: Where's Joe? A month ago Birkett strongly hinted/leaned toward running for Attorney General. That was before Lisa Madigan decided she'd like to retain her position and announced her run for re-election. Since then, little has been seen or heard from the DuPage States Attorney.
With high name recognition and a statewide network, Birkett could be one of the front-runners in the GOP Gubernatorial Primary. We're told he's weighing his options. A decision will have to come soon.
