State Senator Sam McCann could face an opponent after all in the November general election.
McCann won the March Republican primary for the newly-redrawn 50th Senate district, a seat for which there was no Democratic candidate. But now the State Journal-Register reports Citizens Club president Bob Gray is thinking about running against McCann as an independent.
Gray is a retired teacher and former Republican precinct committeeman, his son ran unsuccessfully this week to become the new Sangamon County GOP chairman.
Gray would need to collect three-thousand valid signatures by June to get on the ballot.
