Illinois Republicans might end up with a replacement U.S. Senate candidate who lost to Jack Ryan in the primary.

Several party leaders say state Senator Steve Rauschenberger, who finished third in the primary despite having little campaign cash, is emerging as a leading candidate to face Democrat Barack Obama.

Dairy owner Jim Oberweis, another failed primary contender, also is interested.

The Republican State Central Committee is expected to name a replacement by July 12.
