Gill To Remain On Ballot

According to the Springfield State Journal-Register, independent candidate David Gill will remain on the Nov. 8 ballot in the the 13th Congressional District, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

The decision comes a day after Gill appeared in a federal court in Springfield to seek a preliminary injunction that would prevent the State Board of Elections from removing his name from the ballot despite an earlier State Board of Elections staff review that found Gill had 8,593 signatures considered valid. The number he needed, according to state law, was 10,754.

He turned in more than 11,300.
