CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois candidate for governor Daniel Biss named a state representative from Rockford as his running mate.

The campaign announced state Rep. Litesa Wallace as a lieutenant governor candidate on Friday. The move comes after Biss, a Democratic state senator, dropped his previous running mate over the candidate’s stance on Israel.

Wallace took office in 2014. She said in a statement that she’s been a single mother and was able to pursue a graduate degree because of state programs like child care assistance.

Biss says the fact that Wallace is an African-American woman helps her understand justice and equality issues.
