(AP)- Democratic Sen. Michael Hastings of Tinley Park filed petitions to challenge longtime Secretary of State Jesse White in the Illinois primary.

Hastings says he has respect for White but was unsure if he was going to seek a sixth term. He’ll “wait and see” before making a final decision.

White’s campaign director Rocco Claps says there’s no doubt White is running.
