Third party earns place on ballot
By Matt Porter | firstname.lastname@example.org
ILLINOIS -- Candidates for governor could have a run for their money. A third party member made it onto the ballot. Libertarian, Chad Grimm, joins Republican Bruce Rauner and Democratic Governor Pat Quinn. Grimm's party supports rolling back the income tax and cutting state spending which could draw some conservative votes away from Rauner in the tight election. The liberal-leaning Green Party did not survive its challenges. It was on the ballot in 2010.
