Dr. David Gill’s 2016 Independent Congressional Campaign has come to a close. The Gill Campaign announced on Thursday morning that Dr. David Gill was suspending his campaign in light of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy denying Gill’s application to vacate a stay order granted by a three judge panel in the Court of Appeals in Chicago.
Dr. Gill had challenged a the constitutionality of the Illinois signature requirement for independent candidates, after collecting nearly 11-thousand signatures. Dr. Gill said he plans to continue the lawsuit filed regarding the signature requirement.
Dr. Gill mentioned that his campaign received a very favorable response throughout the district, and he may try to build upon that in 2018. However, if he runs again, unless his lawsuit succeeds, he may not run as an Independent.
