Pritzker’s contributions to Dem committees now total $5.7 million since May
Monday, Jul 9, 2018
All of those contributions were made by JB Pritzker’s gubernatorial campaign. It’s part of his “Blue Wave Illinois” initiative that I told you about in May.
Democratic Majority is controlled by Speaker Madigan. SDVF is Senate President John Cullerton’s committee. Democratic Heartland is a committee designed to benefit Downstate Dems and is overseen by Sen. Scott Bennett of Champaign.
Pritzker has now contributed about $5.7 million to those and other committees since late May.
The Rock Island County Democratic Party, run by Doug House, received a million bucks from Pritzker in May. House also chairs the Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association and the money is supposed to be used to build a grass roots operation outside of Cook County. So far, though, the RICO Dems haven’t reported any significant contributions to others.
