IL remembers first woman elected to statewide office
The first woman elected to statewide office in Illinois has died. Dawn Clark Netsch was 86. In January, she revealed she had ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
Netsch was a Democrat, but people on both sides of the aisle Tuesday are remembering her as a committed public servant. Brian Mackey has more.
