At 9 AM in Chicago the attorney for State Senate candidate John Reinert will be defending signatures so that the McHenry County Board member may stay on the ballot.
Leading the opposition is attorney Steven Robert Verr, who filed the challenge to Reinert’s petitions.
Just to give you some idea of what challenged petitions look like, two are reproduced below:
If Reinert’s petition total remains at 1,000 or above, he will remain on the GOP Primary Election ballot and face off against Craig Wilcox.
If the total slips below 1,000, Wilcox will have a free ride in the Republican Primary and he and Democrat Mary Mahady will contest the General Election in November.
