The two candidates in the State Treasurer’s runoff face the challenge of getting people to vote in the November 18 election. Former state representative John Schroder is up against Democrat Derrick Edwards.
"At the end of the day I can only control so much", Schroder said. "All I can do is keep pounding the message. I believe my message is what mainstream folks are attracted to."
