Mark Kirk backs Tom Cross for Treasurer; Stays out of Gov race

U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., is backing Tom Cross in his bid for Treasurer.

Cross, the former Illinois House Republican minority leader, is going up against CPA Bob Grogan in Tuesday’s primary.

Kirk has not weighed in on the Illinois governor’s primary race, where four Republicans are duking it out. The Illinois Treasurer post will be vacated by Dan Rutherford, who is making a bid for governor.

Here’s Kirk’s endorsement.

As our next Treasurer, Tom will bring his experience as a reform-minded Republican to the office, working on solutions for Illinois taxpayers. Tom will enforce Illinois’ constitutional requirement of a balanced budget and create a Government Integrity Unit to crack down on fraud corruption.

The Chicago Tribune was spot-on in its endorsement of Tom Cross for Treasurer: “Tom Cross has been one of the more conscientious people in state government…a fiscal conservative…”

Please sign up today and join me on the Tom Cross for Treasurer team.

Tom will be a strong addition to our Republican ticket this fall as we hold Democrats accountable for their broken promises and elect a Republican Governor.
