Frerichs looking for upstate support in Treasurer bid

A local state senator who's exploring a run for state Treasurer said winning support from upstate will be key to a successful campaign.

That's according to Democrat from Champaign Mike Frerichs, who has been touring the state to gauge the level of support for his run at the Treasurer seat.  He said that since he serves a downstate district, the people there already know his track record.  The challenge, then, is proving himself to those north of Interstate 80.

Frerichs made the comments Tuesday on the WDWS Morning Show.
