Republicans have picked a new candidate for a three-way McLean County Board race in south Bloomington.
Lyndsay Bloomfield is expected to file Thursday to run in McLean County Board District 9. She replaces Jeremy Bradley, a Republican who withdrew from the race July 9 for family reasons.
Bloomfield works at Country Financial. She is treasurer for the McLean County Republican Party.
“She’s got a lot of support,” said Connie Beard, chair of the McLean County GOP. “She’s excited to step forward and serve.”
Bloomfield will face Democrat David Parker and Libertarian Sol Roberts-Lieb in November. The District 9 seat is currently by Democrat Erik Rankin, who is not seeking re-election. Rankin recently became chair of the McLean County Democratic Party.
