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.
