Democrats Hate Competition, File Frivolous Objections To All Republican Candidates In The City

Yesterday, Democrats filed challenges to all eight of the recently-slated Republican candidates for State Legislature in the City of Chicago. The filings were an attempt to knock Republicans off the ballot, giving the Democrats a free ride in the the November election. If the objections were to be sustained, voters in most districts would have only a single choice on the ballot in the fall.

"Chicago Democrats have driven this state into the ground, and they're rightly worried about voters punishing them at the ballot box this November," said Adam Robinson, Chairman of the Chicago Republican Party.  "It's shameful, but not surprising, that they're attempting to deny Chicago voters a choice.  We will vigorously defend our candidates' right to run for office."

The Republican candidates are:

Senate District 1: George MaAyteh
Senate District 6: Scott Campbell
Senate District 8: Tom Morris
Senate District 17: Xavier "X" Roman
House District 2: Roy Pletsch
House District 10: Kimberly Small
House District 14: Paul Minervino
House District 25: Juan Antonio Diaz
