Gill Files Federal Suit Over Ballot Issues
If Gill gets the result sought by the lawsuit filed Monday, he would face Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville, and Democrat Mark Wicklund of Decatur in the 13th Congressional District election.
Democrats and Republicans in the race had to file just under 740 valid signatures to enter their primaries. Independents, who filed later and don't face primary opposition, are required, in the 13th, to have 10,754 - or more than 14 times the amount needed by major-party candidates.
