Tom Cross Wins GOP Bid for Treasurer Over Grogan

CHICAGO (AP) -- Former House Republican Leader Tom Cross has defeated DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan to win the Republican nomination for state treasurer.

Cross is from Oswego. He has been a member of the General Assembly since 1993, and spent a decade in the House leadership post. He highlighted his legislative experience on the campaign trail.

Grogan is an accountant who has worked as an auditor for DuPage County since 2008. The Downers Grove resident said he had the financial expertise best serve in the role.

The seat is being vacated by current treasurer Dan Rutherford, who made a GOP primary bid for governor.

Cross will take on Democratic state Sen. Michael Frerichs of Champaign in the November general election.
