Republican Illinois Gov. James R. Thompson said he would veto any legislation tailored to help Adlai E. Stevenson III make an independent bid for governor and avoid running on a ticket with supporters of extremist Lyndon LaRouche. Stevenson, a Democrat who lost a bitter 1982 race against Thompson, has said he will challenge in court, or ask the Legislature to change the state election law requiring independent candidates to file nominating petitions with the State Board of Elections by Dec. 5.
