SPRINGFIELD -- A Sangamon County judge is considering an appeal by Republican attorneys to remove a Libertarian candidate for Illinois governor from the November ballot. Circuit Judge Patrick Kelley heard arguments Wednesday in Springfield over the appeal, in which the GOP attorneys question the validity of the voter signatures Chad Grimm, a Lake Zurich High School alumnus now living in Peoria, gathered to get on the ballot. Grimm could draw votes that otherwise would go to Republican candidate Bruce Rauner.
