State Senator Mike Frerichs overcame a 19,000 vote Election Day deficit to become Illinois’ 74th State Treasurer. Absentee and provisional ballot counting came to a close on Tuesday, November 18, and when the dust settled Frerichs led State Representative Tom Cross by just under 9,500 votes.
Cross called Frerichs today to concede and congratulate him on the victory, and although there was no specific mention of a recount, that scenario is highly unlikely considering the cost and the number of votes Cross would have to overcome.
CBAI would like to congratulate Treasurer Elect Frerichs and we look forward to continuing the excellent working relationship we currently enjoy with him as an Illinois State Senator.
