We have requested a list of independent candidates who filed their declarations of candidacy with the Secretary of State but have not received it. We expect to have any final adjustments to our Crib Sheets completed by Thursday.

We are waiting on the list of independent candidates from the Secretary of State. Tomorrow is the deadline for parties to submit their lists of certified candidates to the Secretary of State.
