Challenger to Adam Kinzinger thrown off the ballot

Posted by wlpo on January 20, 2016

Look up Colin McGroarty on the state elections website and you’ll see his status as removed.

The state Wednesday ruled in favor of an objection filed by a man and woman from Morris saying that McGroarty had invalid signatures on his election petitions. With the ruling, McGroarty of Rockford came up over 100 short of having the number of signatures needed to be on the primary ballot against Congressman Adam Kinzinger.

Kinzinger now has no challenger in the March election and as of now no Democrat to beat in the November election.
