SPRINGFIELD, ILL. (KMOX) – A former Miss America is running to take on Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan in 2018.

Erika Harold was crowned in 2003. Long active in Republican politics, she lost to Rodney Davis during the primary in her 2014 run for Congress.

The 37-year-old Harold is a practicing attorney in Urbana. The campaign is heavily focusing on Lisa Madigan’s ties to her father, Michael Madigan, who many Republicans and some Democrats blame for the state’s problems.
