Last week, DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan said an entrance to the Illinois treasurer’s race by House Republican Leader Tom Cross of Oswego wouldn’t upend his plans.
This week, Grogan says he’s set to announce his candidacy for real, even though he’s already been traveling the state talking about it.
“Next week during the Du Quoin State Fair, I’ll be announcing my candidacy for State Treasurer, details to follow,” Grogan posted on Facebook. “While others can talk about political money raised, I’ll be talking about safeguarding the people’s money.”
Former DuPage County Board Chairman Bob Schillerstrom also said he’s seeking the office, but he’s not said what Cross’ likely entrance means to him.
