|Description||Democrat 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's entry into the treasurer's race sets up a Democratic primary contest with Robin Kelly. Kelly is Giannoulias' chief of staff and a former state representative.
Oberman is the son of former Chicago Alderman Marty Oberman
