Five men have applied to fill the Republican national committeeman post left open after Rich Williamson died last month.

Illinois Republican Party Executive Director Jayme Odom said Monday that the candidates for the prestigious but unpaid position are Kent Gray of Leland Grove, Vincent Kolber of Chicago, Marc Levine of Wilmette, Richard Porter of Winnetka and Robert Schillerstrom of Naperville. Gray, an attorney, served on the campaign staffs of presidential candidates Bob Doyle and John McCain, and worked on the staff of President George W. Bush.
