Cohen says he has enough signatures for ballot
Scott Lee Cohen says he isn't having trouble collecting the 25,000 signatures he needs to get on the November ballot as an independent candidate for Illinois governor.
Cohen talked to reporters Thursday because he says there's confusion about who can sign a petition.
He won't say how many signatures he's already collected, but he says it's more than the 25,000 required by June 21.
Cohen is trying to revive his political career after being forced to resign as the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor when issues in his personal life became widely known.
Cohen's goal is to submit between 100,000 and 150,000 signatures so he has a cushion to survive any likely petition challenges.
