DescriptionDemocrat Justin Oberman is running for Illinois treasurer instead of lieutenant governor.

Oberman told supporters in an e-mail Monday that the treasurer's job is the right fit for his agenda of bringing reform to Illinois and creating jobs.

The treasurer's job will be open because first-term incumbent Alexi Giannoulias (jeh-NOO'-lee-ehs) is giving up the post and running for President Barack Obama's old seat in the U.S. Senate.

Oberman is the son of former Chicago Alderman Marty Oberman
