Money reports

Thursday, Jul 17, 2014

* Pearson

Democratic comptroller nominee Sheila Simon, currently the state’s lieutenant governor, reported more than $510,000 left as she takes on incumbent Republican Judy Baar Topinka.

Simon reported raising more than $181,000 in the three-month reporting period. Topinka’s report had not been filed late Tuesday, but she entered the quarter with more than $1.1 million.

Topinka eventually reported raising $148K with $1.26 million on hand.

* Riopell

In the 11th Congressional District, U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, a Naperville Democrat, raised $350,000 in the second three months of the year and reported having $1.4 million in the bank at the end of June.

Challenger Darlene Senger, a Naperville Republican state legislator, raised about $193,000 and had about $150,000 on hand in the same time period. […]

The biggest political money in the suburbs is in the 10th District, where Democratic U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider of Deerfield reported last week having $1.9 million on hand and Republican challenger Bob Dold of Kenilworth said he had $1.65 million.

* Timmons

U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline, raised more than $481,000 in the second quarter as she continued to build a strong fundraising lead over Republican Bobby Schilling ahead of the Nov. 4 election.

Mr. Schilling raised about $236,000 in the second quarter and had $500,000 in cash at the end of June compared to the $1.4 million available to Rep. Bustos, according to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission,

Rep. Bustos has now raised more than $1.9 million in the 2014 election cycle while Mr. Schilling has raised $654,000. The Colona Republican is running to reclaim the 17th Congressional District seat he lost in 2012 to Rep. Bustos.

* Finke

Sen. Andy Manar, D-Bunker Hill, had more than 60 times the cash on hand at the end of June as his opponent, Republican Linda Little of Decatur, based on just-filed campaign disclosure reports. […]

Manar, a former chief of staff to Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, was by far the most prolific fundraiser among Springfield-area candidates. Manar reported raising nearly $205,000 during the three-month period while spending more than $31,000. Combined with money already in his campaign account, Manar had more than $578,000 available at the end of June.

Little, meanwhile, raised a little more than $9,000 during the period and spent about $4,100. Along with money already raised, Little had just less than $9,000 in her fund on June 30. Little’s biggest contributor was Lake Forest businessman Richard Uihlein, who is a frequent contributor to Republican candidates. Little also reported receiving campaign staff assistance from the Republican State Senate Campaign Committee.

Manar collected at least $93,000 in the last quarter from organized labor. The Illinois Education Association and the Laborers’ union each contributed $16,000, while the Service Employees International Union Healthcare Illinois and the Associated Firefighters each contributed $10,000.

Manar is supposed to be a Tier One target, but you would never know it by the money that Little’s raising and spending.

…Adding… More Timmons

[Rep. Mike Smiddy] raised more than $104,000 in the second quarter of this year, according to the latest filing at the Illinois State Board of Elections. He had $105,000 in cash at the end of June compared to the $18,000 available to his Republican opponent, Jim Wozniak.

Mr. Wozniak, an assistant state’s attorney with Rock Island County, raised a little more than $20,000 in between April 1 and June 30. […]

[Sen. Mike Jacobs] has established a $110,000 fundraising lead over Republican opponent Neil Anderson, a Moline firefighter.

Sen. Jacobs raised $51,000 between April 1 and June 30, including $10,000 from the Associated Firefighters of Illinois Political Action Committee. He also received $5,000 from Southern Wine and Spirits of America Inc., of Florida, and $2,500 from MidAmerican Energy Co.

Mr. Anderson had $63,000 in cash at the end of the quarter compared to Sen. Jacobs’ balance of $173,000.

* And from the Mike Bost campaign…

The Bost for Congress campaign today released the following statement from campaign spokesman Ron Deedrick in reaction to the news that Mike Bost raised more money than incumbent Congressman Bill Enyart. The information is according to the latest reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

“Thanks to support from voters across the 12th District, Mike Bost succeeded in out-raising Congressman Bill Enyart by almost $30,000 over the second quarter. Bill Enyart is trailing in the polls and trailing in fundraising, it’s clear that Mike Bost has the momentum in this critical race,” Deedrick said. “Bost has constantly out raised Congressman Enyart for the last 4 months since the primary election. In May the campaign released an internal poll showing Bost leading by 6 points.”

Enyart raised $250,588, spent $128,117 and had $677,498 on hand. Bost raised $283,407, spent $136,360 and had $347,665 on hand.

    The Bost poll is off. Enyart has internal data showing him up 45-42-10 with Bradshaw taking 10.
    Which was within the margin of error, making the race closer than Dems would want but I think with Easy StL, Enyart will always have a 3 point cushion that polls can’t show.


  2. - train111 - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 10:06 am:

    That money thing is troubling for the GOP as Manar is one of the possible two Senate Seats they have a realistic chance of flipping this time around. Fortunately for them their candidate has a bit more cash in the Jacobs race.


  3. - Concerned Dem - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 10:43 am:

    If Rauner wants to, he (and a few of his friends) can eliminate these fundraising deficits for GOP legislative candidates… even the one Little faces with Manar.


  4. - wordslinger - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 10:58 am:

    Schneider/Dold has the makings of the country’s most expensive Congressional race.

    Rep. vs. former Rep.. razor-thin margin last time out, and a red-hot, expensive, big-metro media market due to the governor’s race.


  5. - Under Influenced - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 11:14 am:

    What does Rauner gain by burning cash and bridges to flip two seats for the uber-minority sen. repubs?

    The right question - can radogno keep righter at bay if she throws in the towel in the manar race?


  6. - Concerned Dem - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 11:35 am:

    Rauner gains the ability to prove that he can influence legislative races even when the deck is stacked against the GOP and in turn make a lot of safe Dems nervous.


  7. - Concerned Dem - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 11:38 am:

    Plus for him to burn bridges by doing this assumes there are still bridges there to begin with. I’d say his rhetoric so far this campaign cycle has already done enough damage so he might as well back it up now with cash.

    ====
    He doesn’t need to prove he has a net worth of a gazillion dollars….it’s obvious.

    Damage? Last I checked, Madigan/Cullerton and their majorities don’t exactly have a warm and fuzzy relationship with Quinn.


  9. - a drop in - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    word: according to opensecrets.org, Ill 10 is #6. Ohio 8 is #1 at 15 mil.


  10. - The Prince - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 1:12 pm:

    Money doesn’t talk. It screams. Let me know when Schneider recognizes the Pledge of Allegiance. Widely reported that he does not stand for same.


  11. - wordslinger - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 1:22 pm:

    Prince, perhaps an immersion in the cool waters of Lake Minnetonka would cool your fevered mind.

    Do you think you’re clever? No one knows what you’re hinting at?

    Gee, if Schneider won’t pledge allegiance to the Stars and Stripes, what flag will he pledge his allegiance?

    Think that bile plays on the North Shore?


  12. - The Prince - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 1:37 pm:

    Then why was it reported?


  13. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 3:39 pm:

    I have a feeling the IL S&HGOP both will be getting monies to assist races.

    The reports look “bad” for those statehouse races, but those money ills might not be existing fir the long view.


  14. - Demoralized - Thursday, Jul 17, 14 @ 3:41 pm:

    ==Let me know when Schneider recognizes the Pledge of Allegiance. ==

    You’ve got to be kidding. Grow. Up.
