Rauner pals give $5 million to Munger
Friday, Sep 30, 2016
* As we discussed earlier today, Gov. Rauner just added $5 million to his campaign account and Comptroller Leslie Munger has spent pretty much all her available cash on a one-week statewide TV buy. But Rauner didn’t use his own money to replenish Munger’s coffers. The governor’s two most faithful and generous contributors stepped up instead…
Ken Griffin, the state’s wealthiest man, kicked in $3 million. Richard Uihlein, Dan Proft’s bestest pal, gave $2 million.
* Democrat Susana Mendoza had $1.3 million in the bank at the end of June, and hasn’t raised much since then.
