Former Winston & Strawn partner Raymond W. Mitchell, appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to the Hayes vacancy last year, has announced the formation of a campaign committee.
The committee is co-chaired by former Governor (and former Winston & Strawn managing partner) James R. Thompson and Robert A.
