Ald. Anthony Beale, 9th, was first in line, but all candidates in line by 8 a.m. were eligible for a lottery to be held Tuesday to determine the top spot on the Feb. 26 special primary for the 2nd Congressional District.
Also filing by the 8 a.m. deadline were state Sen. Toi Hutchinson, former state Rep. Robin Kelly, state Sen.-elect Napoleon Harris and Clifford Eagleton of Harvey. Filing for the seat ends Monday.
No Republicans filed for the first in line deadline in the heavily Democratic district.
