Special Election Filings

Candidates for the special primary election to fill the rest of Denny Hastert’s term in the 14th U.S. Congressional District have begun filing their ballot petitions. Filed so far are GOPers Kevin Burns, Chris Lauzen and Jim Oberweis. Of the Dems who already filed for the regular primary election, only Bill Foster and John Laesch have turned in their petitions for the special; Jotham Stein expects to file shortly, but Joe Serra will not. Republican Michael Dilger is MIA.
