Capitol Fax: Cross concedes

The last bit of business of concluding the 2014 elections was the treasurer's race and it seems for a while that former state House Republican leader Tom Cross would remain in the lead. After all the counting of all ballots (mostly votes in Cook County) have given state Sen. Mike Frerichs the win for state Treasurer.

So not that it's a big deal, but three statewide offices are in Republicans hands and three are in Democrat hands. Governor & Lt. Governor (this is the first election both offices are elected on the same ticket in the primary) and state Comptroller are Republican. Secretary of State, Attorney General and now Treasurer are in Democrat hands.

Cross has conceded the race.
