While Gov. Pat Quinn and his Republican opponent Bruce Rauner battle over the the job of governor, the races for some of the state's constitutional offices are heating up, too. The treasurer's office oversees Illinois' investments and provides several services, including college savings plans for residents and a loan program for farmers. State Sen. Michael Frerichs, the Democratic candidate for state treasurer, joined us to talk about the campaign. Frerichs is running against former House minority leader Tom Cross.
