Objection dropped in 52nd District House race

Daily Herald report

Barrington Hills consultant David McSweeney, a candidate for state Representative in the 52nd District, has dropped his objection to Republican primary opponent Danielle Rowe's nominating petitions.

McSweeney initially had objected that many signatures on the Island Lake resident's petitions were of unregistered voters or people who lived outside the district. After a Friday morning hearing at the State Board of Elections, however, McSweeney said the "final outcome will be close if we continue to vigorously pursue the objections," and that he's suspending the effort in the interest of time and minimizing legal fees.
