    Petition filing wrapped up on Monday, setting the stage for several General Assembly races to go straight to November’s general election, though many races are unlikely to be competitive as they feature Republicans running for seats in Chicago, candidates attempting to take down deeply entrenched lawmakers or districts that heavily favor one party.
