Report: Rauner & Quinn bring in most campaign cash
New numbers show just how much money the candidates for Illinois governor have been pulling in for their campaigns.
Republican candidate Bruce Rauner raised more than $1 million in large cash donations from July through September.
Rauner, an equity investor from Winnetka, already put $249,000 of his own money into his campaign. That narrowly missed the $250,000 self-funding limit.
Il. Governor Pat Quinn added nearly $750,000 to his campaign fund.
Two others in the GOP race for governor — state Treasurer Dan Rutherford of Chenoa and state Sen. Bill Brady of Bloomington — took in $179,000 and $48,580 in large donations, respectively, records filed with the State Board of Elections showed.
