Republican DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan is expected to formally announce a run for state treasurer Tuesday at the Du Quoin State Fair.
Grogan, an accountant from Downers Grove, has held the position of DuPage County auditor for two terms.
Other declared candidates in the race for state treasurer so far include State Sen. Mike Frerichs (D-Champaign) and former DuPage County Board Chairman Bob Schillerstrom, a Republican. Illinois House Republican Leader Tom Cross, who announced plans to step down from his leadership position earlier this month, is also pondering a run for state treasurer. Cross is expected to announce his campaign plans soon.
Current State Treasurer Dan Rutherford (R) is seeking a run in the state's 2014 gubernatorial election.
