Former Gov. Pat Quinn has conceded the Democratic primary for Illinois attorney general to state Sen. Kwame Raoul.

The Chicago senator led seven other candidates Tuesday including Quinn. He'll face attorney and former Miss America Erika Harold, who won the GOP primary, in November. The race became an open seat following the surprise announcement Lisa Madigan would not run for a fifth term.

Raoul outspent competitors and received establishment backing from the Cook County Democratic Party. He touted endorsements from teacher and labor unions, saying he'll represent workers and families.

Raoul took over then-Sen. Barack Obama's seat in 2004.
