A small town mayor's race in Illinois is pitting mother against son at the ballot, but no matter who wins the election could have serious consequences on the pair's relationship and some residents are calling the family feud an unwelcome spectacle.
This April, Dixmoor's 3,900 residents will vote on who will be the village's next mayor.
Though prevailing wisdom is that neither Wendy Casey, 45, or son Randall Casey, 27, will be able to unseat incumbent Keevan Grimmet, the unusual ballot has drawn national interest in an election that would be otherwise inconsequential to most major media.
'Both of us are in campaign mode right now,' Wendy Casey told ABC News. 'The boxing gloves are on. He's still my son and I love him, but he's my opponent. That's just politics. That's just the way it is.'
