Topinka Officially Announces Reelection Bid

Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka says she's hitting the road to announce her candidacy for re-election.
Topinka put out a schedule Thursday detailing stops across Illinois. Her trip starts Sunday in Chicago and ends Tuesday in Marion. In between she'll make stops in Rockford, Moline, Peoria, Quincy, Springfield, Edwardsville and Mount Vernon.
Topinka says in the announcement that she's running for re-election "to fight against the ill-advised spending and reckless borrowing that has decimated state finances."
Current Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon is running for comptroller as a Democrat.
