SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- A Chicago Democrat challenging governor Quinn in the March primary election could be knocked off the ballot, but not because of anything he did.

Tio Hardiman is on the top of the Primary ballot after filing first in Springfield.

But The Illinois State Board of Elections has a problem with the nominating petitions filed by his running mate, Brunell Donald.

She's admitted her petitions didn't have her correct address on them.

The question for the Board of Elections is what happens to Tio Hardiman if his Lieutenant Governor candidate isn't on the ballot anymore.

A decision could come next week.
