Irvin reports $1.2 million in first A-1

Monday, Jan 24, 2022

* This looks like a Ron Gidwitz “donor class” special

That is more than Irvin’s Republican opponents have raised lately, but it’s not enough to stay on TV for very long. And once you go off, your message is lost.

In other words, “Paging Ken Griffin.”

    Griffin wants the folks to show some cash first before he drops his own.

    Isn’t that what Griffin said, something to the effect of showing some fundraising prowess, if you will?

    If Griffin is impressed, he’s in, not impressed, the well goes dry?

    The average wealth of this group is $500M and average age is 70.

    Duchossois and Zell? That’s the job killer special! They’ve never met an American job they didn’t want to liquidate. Scary stuff if these are the allies Richard Irvin chooses.

    ===301 N. Market Street
    Wilmington, DE 19801===

    That’s an address that definitely stands out. I wonder about the idea of accepting a huge contribution from an entity with the same address as Winklevoss Capital Management.

    LOL. Those are people who have a lot of money to waste or they were seriously fooled into this.

    They should just pile a bunch of cash and light it on fire.

    Griffin is in. This is just fluff. Griffin is the dude at the end of Casablanca who didn’t know there was gambling going on. Griffin knows as does the team around Irvin that he’s gonna jump in the deep end with no water wings soon enough. Curious if any big money from Sangamon jumped in for Milhiser yet.


  7. - Rabid - Tuesday, Jan 25, 22 @ 5:36 am:

    Duchossois and Zell dropped before announcement


  8. - Arsenal - Tuesday, Jan 25, 22 @ 6:56 am:

    Irvin doesn’t have to be all that smart to parlay Gidwitz Bucks and a short ad buy into more money, tho, even if Griffin doesn’t want to jump in yet.

    -If Griffin is impressed, he’s in, not impressed, the well goes dry?–
    His well is never going dry. Griffin is in. Why do you think Irvin is in?


  10. - Pundent - Tuesday, Jan 25, 22 @ 7:13 am:

    Well Griffin did say that he hasn’t met Irvin yet. But $1.2M in the bank might warrant and introduction. Or as Ringo once famously said, “I hope we pass the audition.”

    ===Griffin is the dude at the end of Casablanca who didn’t know there was gambling going on.===

    No.

    Griffin is the Don… “with a lotta buffers”

    ===His well is never going dry. Griffin is in. Why do you think Irvin is in?===

    You string someone out till they aren’t just needed, they are desperate without them.

    Plus, Irvin needed to show some monies outside Griffin’s

    Wasn’t it mere weeks ago that Gidwitz was looking for a candidate… Rich had a whole post about it… now Gidwitz lands on Irvin?

    So Irvin got Gidwitz and that money on board, that’s a big move to coalesce and dry up cash for another bankrolled candidate…

    Now, we’ll wait to see deposits going forward?

    Probably?

    Gotta stay up on Tee-Vee

    Over/Under on how long until the next A2 drops with a million plus.

    I will say Friday.

    Some people have enough wealth and income that potential savings in taxes are way more than their investment in political campaigns. Simple as that.
