Over a dozen Republican lawmakers rallied at Veterans Airport in Marion on Monday,  in support of  Erika Harold - who is running for Attorney General against Democrat Kwame Raoul. 

Erika Harold won the Republican nomination for Illinois attorney general, while state Sen. Kwame Raoul defeated a crowded race to win the Democratic nod. They'll face off in the general election in November.

Incumbent Attorney General Lisa Madigan set off a scramble last year when she made a surprise announcement she would not seek a fifth term. The race drew ten candidates in all.

With funding from the Republican Party and Governor Bruce Rauner, Harold beat former Burr Ridge mayor Gary Grasso, winning 60 percent of the vote.

Republican Governor Bruce Rauner has already said he plans to run for re-election in two years.

Democrats don't have a single obvious candidate for governor.
