Radio station WLS reports that a last-minute challenge has been filed in Illinois by Republican group, The Chicago Objectors. The Objectors allege that Obama Campaign petitions to be on the March 20 ballot contain entries from persons who are not registered voters and they allege other irregularities. The Campaign filed 4,500 petitions when only 3,000 were required. The Illinois State Board of Elections will rule on whether sufficient signatures were presented sometime toward the end of the month.
In another challenge, Obama’s birth certificate was cited as a reason to deny him a ballot position.
