Green Party Will Have Two Competitive U.S. House Primaries in Illinois

From Peter Orvetti at Green Party Watch:

According to Ballot Access News, the Green Party is the only party slated to have a competitive primary in the Illinois Fifth District U.S. House race, where Warren Grimsley, Richard Mayers, and Rob Sherman are all running. Democratic incumbent Rep. Mike Quigley is unopposed in his party’s primary, while there is no Republican candidate. Green Nancy Wade took 6.1% in a three-way race in the district in 2014.

There is also a competitive Green primary in the 12th District, where Paula Bradshaw will face Sadona Folkner. There was no Green on the November ballot two years ago; in 2012, Bradshaw took 5.6% in a three-way race.

The primaries will be held on March 15.
