Independent State Senate Candidate Bob Gray
More names are being added to the November ballot.
Bob Gray is moving ahead with an independent candidacy for the 50th State Senate District seat being vacated by Republican Larry Bomke.
Incumbent Republican State Senator Sam McCann had been running unopposed for that seat, but Gray says voters need an alternative to what the two major parties have to offer.
Meanwhile, an Edwardsville businessman has filed to run as an independent in the 13th Congressional District.
If his petitions are upheld, he will face Democrat David Gill and Republican Rodney Davis this fall.
