McMahon ends attorney general speculation, backs Harold in race
Kane County State’s Attorney Joseph McMahon has endorsed Republican Erika Harold in her run for Illinois attorney general, according to the Harold campaign.
“For the past several months, I have explored the idea of running for Attorney General of Illinois,” McMahon said in a statement. “I have decided that now is not the time for me to seek other public office and have decided to throw my full support behind Erika Harold because she is best equipped to change business as usual in Springfield and take on the career politicians who have run Illinois into the ditch.”
McMahon expressed his thanks for the statewide support he received while considering a run. He also stressed his commitment to supporting Harold and his duties in Kane County.
“I would like to thank Joe for his support and everything he does for the citizens of Kane County as their state’s attorney," Harold said in the release. "I look forward to working with him to address the challenges state’s attorneys face as they protect families across the state."
