Son of ex-alderman joining treasurer's race

September 21, 2009 Democrat Justin Oberman says he is pulling out of the lieutenant governor's race and will instead seek the treasurer's office.

Oberman is the son of one-time city council member Martin Oberman. He would face former state representative Robin Kelly in the Democratic primary.

On the Republican side, Dan Rootherford is running for the seat being vacated by Alexi Giannoulias.
