WGLT's The Leadoff - Thursday 3/3/22

WGLT's the Leadoff is everything you need to know for Thursday, March 3. Former Illinois House Speaker and Democratic party boss Michael Madigan was indicted on racketeering charges on Wednesday. And the state's junior Democratic Senatory said she's pleased by the stance President Joe Biden took against Russia during his first state of the union address. Plus, State Farm sues electric vehicle company Tesla and Rivian faces a slew of canceled orders after announcing price increases this week.
