ILLINOIS -- Democratic candidate for Governor Tio Hardiman's running mate could be stricken from the Primary ballot on Thursday.

Hardiman chose Chicago lawyer Brunell Donald as his Lieutenant Governor candidate, but records showed the address on her nominating petitions was not correct. As such, she was not legally able to vote, which is a requirement for a candidate.

The full board of elections could vote Thursday to remove Donald from the ticket, but the whole matter could end up in the courts.
