The Libertarian Party is looking to jump into the governor's race. Chad Grimm is hoping to square off against Governor Quinn and GOP candidate Bruce Rauner this fall. He says if he's elected, he'll take immediate steps to help people who are locked up for petty crimes.
Grimm believes Illinois should legalize marijuana but he understands it'll take baby steps to get that cleared through the legislature. The Libertarian Party as a whole also wants to focus on bringing down taxes in Illinois. They say that's one of the number one reasons why businesses are running out of the state. The Party turned in nearly 44-thousand signatures to the State Board of Elections. They're expecting Democrats and Republicans to challenge their petitions but Party leaders are confident they'll make it on the ballot.
