There is one last race that hasn't been decided yet...
And that race is for state treasurer. This turned out to be the closest race in this state this cycle. The Republican former state house leader Tom Cross is leading against his Democrat challenger state Sen. Mike Frerichs. They're still counting ballots and it appears Mr. Frerichs might be gaining some votes.
I always thought the race for governor in 2014 would be close and appears this was the race every should have their eye one. State treasurer isn't an office that would lead a ticket anyway. Consider four years ago that the closer races was for Governor and US Senate both races were very close.
Think about it Democrat Pat Quinn barely got elected Governor in 2010 and so did Republican Mark Kirk find himself in President Obama's old US Senate seat. This time the close race was down ballot.
