Michael W. Frerichs (D) - Incumbent

“During my tenure, I have returned more than $1.3 billion back to Illinoisans through the I-Cash program, more than any other Treasurer in history. I have expanded access to higher education by improving the 529 College Savings Program to the top-rated program in the country, earning independent analyst Morningstar's Gold rating five years in a row.” 

Tom Demmer (R)

"I’m now running to be your next State Treasurer because I believe Illinois needs a fiscal watchdog who will protect your tax dollars. Just look at the news over the last couple weeks: There are continuous criminal indictments of politicians and a never ending stream of tax increase proposals."
