Romney first to file full slate of delegates for IL primary
While Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum's Iowa caucus numbers are only a hair apart, Romney has meanwhile positioned him on top of the Illinois primary ballot, as the first presidential candidate to file a full slate of candidates for Illinois' March 20 primary.
State Treasurer Dan Rutherford, as you've read here before, is Romney's Illinois campaign chairman and pledged a full slate at a press conference with Senator Mark Kirk in Chicago late last month.
Romney delegates include state Rep. Patti Bellock, of Hinsdale, and Dennis Reboletti, of Elmhurst, as well as a number of suburbanites.
