This likely explains a lot of the issues Mike Frerichs has been facing with his campaign for Treasurer: On his site, he says that he aspires and 'hopes' to earn the support of voters to be the next Democratic nominee for State Treasurer here in Illinois.
We posted about this on Tuesday and they still haven't fixed it.
So...we're operating under the assumption that being the nominee is, indeed, all Mike Frerichs 'hopes' to be in this race.
He doesn't really want to win it?
Nope. Just like the folks who lose come Oscar time, Mike Frerichs - and his big, sad bag full of mistakes - is just happy to be nominated.
