*** UPDATED x2 - Biss reports $270K - Kennedy reports $164K *** Rauner contributes $305K to Erika Harold, and other money news
Tuesday, Mar 6, 2018
* It’s kinda late and it’s not a huge amount of money, but Gov. Rauner’s campaign kicked in $305,000 to Erika Harold’s primary race via broadcast ads.
* Democratic Cook County Assessor candidate Fritz Kaegi put another $250K into his own primary race, bringing his self-funding total to just under $1.6 million. Kaegi says he’s a progressive, so the self-funding bit is apparently OK with folks who don’t like rich candidates in other races.
* And The JOBS PAC was just reinvigorated with $300,000 from the Illinois Manufacturers Association and is now making independent expenditures on behalf of two opponents of the Cook County pop tax, commissioners John Fritchey and Richard Boykin.
*** UPDATE 2 *** The Biss campaign just reported $270 in contributions, including $100K from Jonathan Soros, who had earlier agreed to match small donors.
