Campaign finance open thread
Monday, Jul 31, 2006
Today is campaign finance day in Illinois. Candidates and political committees have to file their campaign disclosure statements for January 1 through June 30 by midnight tonight. Here’s the link. You can go here to search by a candidate’s name. Tell us what you’ve found in comments.
(This thread wisely suggested by a commenter.)
UPDATE:I’ll put the feed back up if and or when ICPR starts posting to its blog. For now, however, the AP story is up:
The governor brought in about $6.5 million in the first six months of 2006 and spent nearly $10 million, much of that on television advertisements promoting his re-election bid after easily winning the March Democratic primary, a campaign spokeswoman said Monday.
And for a little history, recall that Jim Ryan had $690,000 in cash at this point four years ago.
UPDATE: Oops. ICPR was posting. Sorry.
