A change of plans, and candidates, for Sangamon County Democrats.
The party has now slated funeral home director Jerry Curry to be their nominee to Sangamon County Coroner.
Curry submitted petitions Monday to appear on the November ballot, opposing Republican incumbent Cinda Edwards.
Curry ran for coroner in 1996, losing that year to Susan Boone, who resigned last year under pressure.
Democrats had initially planned to run Rachel Ralston this fall, but her potential candidacy was derailed by a new state law that appeared to make her ineligible to run as a Democrat, because she voted in the GOP primary in March.
