House Republican Leader Tom Cross will be in Springfield later today as he continues a statewide flyaround to launch his campaign for state treasurer.
Cross says he will get the treasurer’s office more involved in ensuring that state budgets actually live up to the constitutional mandate that they must be balanced. Cross will appear live Friday morning on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show.”
In the meantime, Cross will apparently face a Republican primary challenge.
DuPage County auditor Bob Grogan says he has far more experience in accounting and finance than Cross, and is better qualified to straighten out the state’s fiscal problems.
