SPRINGFIELD – It will be nearly ten months before Illinois voters pick their governor, but the money already spent is mind boggling.
Campaign disclosure reports show $28 million was spent in the final three months of 2017. It’s no surprise that nine out of every 10 dollars spent, was spent by the campaigns of Gov. Bruce Rauner and Democrat J.B. Pritzker. Both candidates spent $13 million apiece.
While Rauner has more in the bank with $56 million compared to Pritzker’s 8 million, Rauner raised $3 million during the period, compared to Pritzker’s $21 million.
