Recent withdrawals in Cook County subcircuit races

Judge Anthony C. "Tony" Kyriakopoulos recently dropped his bid to hold onto the seat to which he was appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court in early 2010.

Kyriakopoulos's withdrawal from the race leaves Judge Thomas R. Allen as the only candidate left for the Locallo vacancy in the 10th Subcircuit. (Although former Ald. Allen was appointed by the Illinois Supreme Court to the countywide Pucinski vacancy, he sought, and received, slating in this race instead.) Since no Republican filed in this race, Judge Allen is virtually assured of winning a full term.

Also, earlier last week, Tracey Lynn Payne withdrew her bid to be elected to the Moore vacancy in the 3rd Subcircuit. Payne's withdrawal came just days after Rosemary L. Cotin folded her candidacy in that same race.
