ROCKFORD - A pair of Stateline elections get a little more competitive.
Joe Terrell and Bob Springer officially announced their candidacy for Winnebago County Clerk and Winnebago County Sheriff respectively.
Terrell will try to win the republican nomination. He'll have to unseat current Winn. Co. Clerk, Margie Mullins.
Springer is running on the democratic ticket. He'll have his hands full as he tries to replace outgoing Sheriff Richard Meyers who is retiring.
To earn the nomination, Springer will have to defeat fellow candidates Bob Redmond and Randy Olson. So far, only Gary Caruana (R) is running on the republican ticket.
