Is Sen. McCann running for Governor? The rumor mill says “Yes!”

Do we finally have an answer on what Sen. Sam McCann (R-50) is going to run for? In December, he claimed he would not seek reelection for his current senate seat. But then in March, he said he might run as an independent. At that same event, McCann said he might also run for governor.

Sources have now indicated that McCann will in fact make an independent bid for governor. Insiders have long speculated that this was his plan from the beginning. He missed his self-imposed 30 day deadline set March 13, and it is expected that the formal announcement will come on Monday.

If the rumors hold true, McCann will be the 5th candidate running for governor. He will also need to raise at least 25,000 signatures to get on the ballot. You can learn more about that race on our campaign headquarters page.
