Typo Leads to Ives Primary Campaign Restart

The uphill battle to knock off Governor Bruce Rauner in next year’s Republican primary has hit an early snag.

Republican Representative Jeanne Ives has to start over with her nominating petitions… because of a typo that transposed numbers in the home address of her running mate, former lawmaker Rich Morthland.

Such a mistake could get petitions thrown out, so Ives is asking volunteers to discard any with the incorrect information and start over with a corrected petition.

Ives says she remains confident that she will get the signatures necessary to get on the March GOP primary ballot.
