Gallagher files as expected for McCarthy vacancy

Assistant Public Defender Daniel J. Gallagher's nominating petitions for the recently opened McCarthy vacancy were filed when the doors opened this morning at the Illinois State Board of Elections. A lawyer since 1994, Gallagher was "pre-endorsed" in September by the Cook County Democratic Party in case a vacancy opened up after the regular filing period. Gallagher doesn't yet have a campaign website up and running (at least not that I could find) but he does have this Facebook page.

The McCarthy vacancy is the only new vacancy posted in Cook County, although there are others downstate.

The special filing period ends next Monday, November 23.
