Quinn to report $3.7 million raised, more than $12 million on hand

Tuesday, Jul 15, 2014

* From a press release…

As Governor Quinn heads into the final fundraising quarter of his campaign for re-election, he’ll do so with more than $12 million on hand. Quinn for Illinois today released their latest fundraising numbers, raising more than $3.7 million in the second quarter alone.

The Governor’s campaign had 1,357 donors in the second quarter, with 68% of them contributing $100 or less. Additional contributions since July 1 when the fundraising quarter ended have brought the total to more than $12 million on hand.

    Impressive.

    Nice to have, better to spend.

    Educating this state on Rauner, something the “2″ and the “Fiasco Friday” Crew failed to do because they lacked the greenbacks, is going to cost every available penny…

    …then there is responding to all the negatives that the press is giving for free on Quinn that Rauner will reinforce…

    Invest in infrastructure to help the Unions, and make sure the GOTV is locked in place, not falling into position days before Election Day.

    This may be true; doing all that is going to cost way more than $12 million, but all already know that.

    Get starters Quinn Crew, like yesterday.

    remarkable that so few contributed. seriously, that’s like the number you’d get at 4 or 5 good fundraisers.


  4. - wordslinger - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 12:37 pm:

    It’s good to be the governor.


  5. - Cassiopeia - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 12:37 pm:

    They spent $878,169 of that money. That’s I pretty big overhead.

    Lots of money on both “sides” for negative ads.

    Somewhere, media buyers are smiling.


  8. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 12:40 pm:

    Rick Pearson Twitters that their June 30 report stated 11.7. 11.7 is more than 12?


  9. - Marty Funkhouser - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 12:43 pm:

    I guess it’s an OK number until you realize Brucie and Ken Griffin could write checks for five times that without having to sell an extra house or one of their yachts.


  10. - Modest proposal - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 12:43 pm:

    So, 922 people gave about $100,000 maximum, and less than 2.5% of the money. The other 435 donors gave about $8,500 a piece and 97.5% of the money.


  11. - Black Ivy - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 12:49 pm:

    Not surprised to learn that Governor Quinn has been able to keep his tried and true in line and raise $12 million last quarter. This time, money won’t buy him an explanation as to why his people tried to buy off minority votes through the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative scheme. #fessupplease


  12. - Jimbo - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 12:49 pm:

    I believe that likely means they raised 3.7, and had 11.7 at the end of the quarter. They have over 12 cash on hand as of right now. I’m just guessing though. Maybe they used “new math”


  13. - Jimbo - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 12:50 pm:

    Nevermind. Now that I read it, the numbers are all end of quarter. “New math” it is.


  14. - Cassiopeia - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 1:20 pm:

    $1 million was from Democratic Governor’s Association and another $1 million from SEIU.

    Further, of the total raised $3,150,00 was from transfers. Not exactly a grass-roots effort. Mostly insiders with current interests at stake.

    Quinn donors for quarter: 1357

    Rauner donors for quarter: 8500+

    Yikes


  16. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 1:27 pm:

    - Cassiopeia -,

    Ken Griffin made a $2.5 million donation to Rauner.

    “Not exactly a grass-roots effort. Mostly one insider with current interests at stake making an investment.”

    Better.


  17. - Snucka - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 1:33 pm:

    Not that hard to understand: he had $11.7 million as of 6/30, and has raised more since then… putting him over $12 million.

    Cassiopeia: Half of Rauner’s second quarter cash came for the DGA, Dick Uihlein and Ken Griffin. Does it suddenly matter where the money comes from?

    Better.==

    From Rauner’s recent Twitter: “More than 8500 donations this quarter. 80% of donations - over 6800 - were $100 or less…”

    –From Rauner’s recent Twitter: “More than 8500 donations this quarter. 80% of donations - over 6800 - were $100 or less…”–

    From both Rauner and Quinn, that’s just spin. So they had a bunch of cheap-ticket chicken dinner funders. So what?

    They both have big hitters doing the heavy lifting. Rauner just has more of them.


  20. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 1:40 pm:

    From the fake twitter;

    @FakeBruceRauner - my buddy Ken Griffin gave me $2.5 million. Why? Cause he can! Being “.01%er” rules. #NotEnoughInfluence #Raunerites


  21. - Snucka - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 1:46 pm:

    Rich, have you thought about tracking (or aggregating in some way) the money from which each side will benefit (PACs and independent expenditures)? There are quite a few committees that have popped up and it’s hard to keep track of them all!


  22. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 1:49 pm:

    ==Rauner just has more of them.==

    About 6-7 times more of them. Both got a few big checks, but overall Rauner out raised Quinn more than 2-1. That’s a bad sign for Quinn, but not really unexpected.


  23. - Norseman - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 1:55 pm:

    Given the bad news coming out each day, Quinn better start spending. He has a lot of negatives to overcome.


  24. - A guy... - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 2:03 pm:

    Good news since the $55M he had at his disposal last time most likely won’t be available this time. (snark)


  25. - Nonplussed - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 2:25 pm:

    Quinn has a strategy. There is a good Wapo story on Bill Hyers. The money shot: “In the uncertain early days of Michael Nutter’s long-shot 2007 Democratic mayoral primary campaign in Philadelphia, donors were furious that Nutter wasn’t using ads of his own to try to keep pace with the early television ads of opponents who were faring better in the polls. Hyers, who was managing the campaign, “just really calmed everything down,” recalls Nutter, who went on to be elected mayor. “Bill had to step in and say, ‘We have a strategy. Stick with us.’ It was an important moment.”

    Six years later de Blasio was also down in the polls early on. But this time it was the candidate who was wondering aloud whether to start spending money on TV ads or mailers to boost his paltry name recognition.

    “I was tempted,” de Blasio says. But Hyers “kept coming back to the virtues of marshaling your resources. . . . He kept sticking to his guns,” the mayor-elect says. The candidate listened to the campaign manager.


  26. - steve schnorf - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 2:35 pm:

    I think the real news here is that Gov Quinn has enough money that spending alone won’t determine the outcome of the election as it did ‘06, when Rod had a lot and Judy didn’t have much. Here it will be uneven but not by such overwhelming margins. That should make for a better election.


  27. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:26 pm:

    “Here it will be uneven but not by such overwhelming margins. That should make for a better election.”

    I think better candidates would make for a better election. ;)


  28. - Modest proposal - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:41 pm:

    I think Steve was referring to a longer election night, because it will be closer


  29. - steve schnorf - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 3:55 pm:

    mp, well said


  30. - Soccermom - Tuesday, Jul 15, 14 @ 5:16 pm:

    I think Hyers has the right idea. At this point, I think the only people paying attention to this race are the folks who read this blog. Rauner doesn’t seem to be gaining momentum — in fact, he seems to have lost a step or two. So keep your powder dry until after Labor Day.
