Lipinski will not replace Lipinski and other primary ballot changes

According to the Illinois State Board of Elections website, Scott Edward Lipinski was removed yesterday from the ballot, ending his quest to replace his mother, the Hon. Marcella C. Lipinski, in Cook County's 15th Judicial Subcircuit. A crowded field remains in that race including Linzey D. Jones, Frank James Ryan, Pat Flanagan, Nicholas W. Karas, Richard G. Karwaczka, Karla Marie Fiaoni, Michael Brendan Barrett, and Associate Judge Joan Marie G. Kubalanza.

William D. Moore's bid for the 15th Subcircuit Phelan vacancy was also presumably ended yesterday when he was removed from the ballot. Remaining in the race for the Phelan vacancy are Judge John C. Griffin (appointed to this vacancy by the Illinois Supreme Court); Carl Evans, Jr.; Nichole C. Patton; Thomas "TJ" Somer; and Mary Beth Kent Duffy.

In addition, James Edward Hanlon has withdrawn his candidacy for the countywide Bronstein vacancy. Remaining in the race for the Bronstein vacancy are Terry MacCarthy, Diann K. Marsalek, Sharon Finegan Patterson, and Thomas William Flannigan. (The Cook County Clerk's website indicates that an objection which had been filed to Patterson's candidacy was overruled this week.)
