Stand for Children, and these 9 candidates

Stand for Children Illinois has filed an amended statement of organization listing the candidates they support.

In addition to those who have already reported contributions, others named in the filing include Democrats Mark Walker and Daniel Biss and Republicans Ryan Scott Higgins and Richard Morthland.

That brings to nine the number of candidates who may be reporting $50K checks in the next few days, including six Democrats and three Republicans. Four of the nine candidates the group favors are challengers or candidates in open seats.
