More than 700 candidates file for June Illinois primary

Republicans filing for the office before Monday include Bull Valley businessman Gary Rabine, Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin, state Sen. Darren Bailey of Xenia and former state Sen. Paul Schimpf of Waterloo. Cryptocurrency venture capitalist Jesse Sullivan of Petersburg and Max Solomon of Hazel Crest filed at the deadline, which gives them the opportunity to grab the last spot on the ballot. Keisha Smith of Country Club Hills also filed, but did not file a lieutenant governor running mate, which is required.
