Moore withdraws from countywide McGinnis race

Per the Illinois Board of Elections website, Marcellus H. Moore, Jr. has withdrawn his candidacy for the countywide McGinnis vacancy.

Moore's withdrawal leaves three candidates in that race, Brian Terrence Sexton, Peter Michael Gonzalez, and Bradley R. Trowbridge.

An objection to Trowbridge's candidacy was filed with the Cook County Electoral Board, and the Cook County Clerk's website shows, as of this posting, that a decision on Trowbridge's ballot status is still pending. The pending decision may be favorable to Trowbridge's hopes, given that the Gonzalez campaign recently circulated an email suggesting that their candidate will face two opponents in March.
