Minority parties have trouble recruiting candidates all over the country.
June 24th, Democratic Party District 6 McHenry County Board candidate Allison Barnard withdrew her candidacy.
The reason was that she was moving out of McHenry County.
Yesterday, District 4 candidate Andrew Breen pulled out as well.
He had signaled he would earlier, saying that he had “watched his party cannibalize itself.”
On the County Clerk’s web site it shows Barnard was replaced by Cathy Johnson.
There is still time for the Democratic Party to replace Breen.
Breen and running mate were facing off against Republicans Kay Bates and Craig Wilcox.
