Husband-and-Wife Duo Wants to Unseat Bean

Bill and Randi Scheurer want to unseat Rep. Melissa Bean (D) so badly that both have decided to run against her.

Bill Scheurer, running under the Moderate Party banner in the 8th district, won 5 percent of the vote in last year’s three-way race, which Bean won with 51 percent of the vote.

Scheurer’s showing was enough to win his Moderate Party status as an established party in the exurban Chicago district.

He plans to run again in November 2008 as the party standard-bearer.

Despite her husband’s plans, Randi Scheurer is challenging Bean for the Democratic nomination.

Both Scheurers are using their opposition to the Iraq War as a basis for their candidacies.
