(AP) -- Another former candidate for Illinois lieutenant governor has submitted an application to be the new Democratic nominee for the post.
State Rep. Arthur Turner says he submitted his application Monday. He's been in the state legislature for more than 30 years.
Former candidate Thomas Castillo has also applied.
Turner came in second to Scott Lee Cohen in the February primary. Cohen left the race after beating five other Democrats.
The Democratic Party is accepting applications from people who want to replace Cohen on the ballot. More than 200 applications have been submitted.
Applicants include former comptroller candidate Raja Krishnamoorthi (RAH'-jah krish-nah-MOOR'-thee) and Sheila Simon, daughter of late U.S. Sen. Paul Simon.
