    I’m guessing there’s a lot of Rauner small contributors waiting on checks from distressed Nigerian princesses they assisted financially after meeting on the innertubes.

    Without that money, I wonder how Rauner could keep going up against “The Machine” like he does?

    Someone check the memo section for the words “Stay Strong. You’re our only hope”

    I get these fundraising letters from Rauner that are pretty ridiculous, they’re usually like 4-5 pages and they have all this markup like paragraphs circled and text underlined by hand to give the impression that this is some casual letter but they’re so long. Most pros will tell you that you lose readers with longer text. However they must be working because he’s raising tons of small donations from it.

    It’s also why I’m a little skeptical of the chances of a Rauner primary challenger, despite all the toxic pushback after HB40. Rauner’s been sitting on $65-70 million this whole year and yet all these Rauner supporters are still sending him low dollar checks, his messaging must be resonating with Republican primary voters enough to motivate them to send a low dollar check to someone who clearly doesn’t nee the money.

    Where are all of Team Rauner’s “pizza club” donations??? Didn’t those “Defeat Madigan” letters bear any fruit???

    You have to wonder about the mindset of people who give $20 to the political campaign of a billionaire with 60 million in his campaign account

    PJ - nothing confusing about it at all. it reveals the depth of his support among some people. Pawar could have used more support like that in addition to the money he couldn’t raise.

    Captain, those 4-5 pagers are a godsend. One can get the coffee grounds to the garbage can with no chance of leaks.

    It takes a special kind of goofball to write a check to Rauner.

    So much money goes to campaigning knowing there is only one winner in the end. Instead of using it for PR, candidates should prove to people through actions why we should vote for them. I rather have them compete about who did more volunteer work or raised more money for a cause.
    Unfortunately that’s politics but that should change. I rather chose a candidate who has used money for good than one who I’m supposed to take his word that he will Do good if elected.

    I understand that part of campaigning is telling people what they done for citizens but it’s not enough. Especially when the typical political campaign speech is all about telling people what they want to hear

    Finally. It makes absolutely no sense to vote for a rich person who will make decisions in office that will affect the common person (middle, lowerclass) when he or she has never experienced any of the struggles regular people go through. (and yes I did break my post into three parts to divide my three points)
