Two supporters of rightist Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. asked a court to order the Illinois Democratic Party to let them speak before the state convention in Springfield this weekend. The suit was filed in Chicago on behalf of Mark Fairchild and Janice Hart, who scored upset victories in the lieutenant governor and secretary of state races in last March's Democratic primary. State Party Chairman Vince Demuzio has announced that the LaRouche candidates would not be allowed to address the convention.
