Republican governor candidate Bruce Rauner has now crossed the $20 million mark for campaign contributions since launching his campaign in March 2013.
The latest disclosure report Rauner filed with the State Board of Elections showed $365,000 in new donations, bringing his campaign’s total take to more than $20.2 million. Of that, nearly $6.6 million has come from Rauner himself.
Rauner, a wealthy equity investor from Winnetka, has raised more than $5.2 million, since winning a four-way primary for the Republican nomination for governor on March 18. That includes $1.5 million from the Republican Governors Association and $526,000 Rauner gave to his campaign.
Gov. Quinn reported $8.9 million on hand at the end of March. He’s raised less than $100,000 since then.
