Kwame Raoul, Erika Harold to vie for Illinois Attorney General >>>

Illinois will get its second African-American attorney general in state history this fall. State Senator Kwame Raoul and former Miss America Erika Harold will face off in November.

Race will be perhaps one of the few things that Republican Harold and Democrat Raoul have in common.

Both are African American, but they have vastly different views of the state of Illinois and the country in general.
Raoul used his victory speech in the Democratic race for attorney general to attack President Donald Trump, Harold's alleged past comments about gay parents, and her ties to the unpopular Governor Bruce Rauner.

He then said he hopes to run a more dignified race this fall.

Raoul narrowly defeated former Governor Pat Quinn by about three percentage points.

Harold easily beat her Republican challenger Gary Grasso by about 20 percentage points.
