Illinois State Appeals Court Won’t Expedite Republican Challenge to Libertarian U.S. House Nominee in Illinois

Ballot Access News

On October 2, the Illinois state appeals court refused to expedite Bixler v Illinois State Board of Elections. This was a lawsuit filed by Republicans to keep Bill Redpath off the ballot as the Libertarian nominee for U.S. House. The trial court had ruled in favor of Redpath, and the appeals court then refused to expedite the appeal, so Redpath is safely on the ballot. He is the only minor party or independent candidate for U.S. House in Illinois this year who survived a challenge.
