A couple more contested candidates have filed D2s:
Citizens for Michael P McAuliffe reported $272,548 in receipts, $82,684 in-kind, and $292,880 in expenditures. Just over a quarter of the receipts, and nearly all of the in-kinds, came from Tom Cross or the House Republican caucus PAC. Neither PAC of Rep. McAuliffe’s opponent, Rep. Ralph Capparelli, has filed yet; we’ll just have to wait to see how much of the million the Dean had in the bank that he actually spent last autumn.
Gary Dahl for State Senate reported $659,948 in receipts, $136,122 in-kind, and $661,772 in expenditures. Over half of the receipts came from the Senate Republicans or Frank Watson; in-kinds were mostly the Illinois Republican Party, the Senate Republicans or the Illinois Chamber. Incumbent Pat Welch hasn’t filed yet, but this race is vying with Sullivan/Ernst, Forby/Sumnmers and Althoff/Ouimet for top honors in this cycle’s record-setting contest.
Citizens for Schock reported $351,004 in receipts, $231,192 in-kind, and $377,863 in expenditures. About half of the receipts came from Tom Cross or the HRO, as did four-fifths of the in-kinds. He reports two mailings worth a total of $3K paid for by the Southern IL Medical Alliance to Save Healthcare (SMASH), one a week after the election, and one a month after. Schock eked out a win against incumbent Ricca Slone, who hasn’t filed yet.
