Illinois 2010 Elections–Lt. Governor: Mike Boland Files Last at 4:51 P.M.; 13-Men, 0-Women File

(Springfield, IL) — November 2, 2009. In the 2010 Illinois Lt. Govenor race, like the governor’s race,  13 candidates filed nominating petitions, and of those 13 men and 0 women filed to become the state’s second banana.
