Our View: Netsch lives on with influence
Dawn Clark Netsch, a liberal Democrat from Chicago, former state comptroller and a longtime state senator, was a generation ahead of her time.
Netsch, who died Tuesday at age 86, won the Democratic nomination for governor in 1994, the first woman to do so for a major party in Illinois.
She campaigned hard against incumbent Republican Gov. Jim Edgar of Charleston.
