The two major parties have filed. The Democratic Party of Illinois, which proudly includes all but one statewide officials and the leaders of both legislative chambers, shows $109K in receipts, $700K spent, and just $166,044.60 available. Not to worry, Democrats; the party chairman has additional funds. Friends of Michael J. Madigan shows $781K in receipts, $540K spent, and $1,009,329.95 available. Still, that's just shy of $1.2 million available to the party in power. The other major party, the Illinois Republican Party, shows $691K in receipts, $447K spent and $254,530.17 available. Their chair is not an office holder with another PAC.
Some Republicans who wanted to lead the party in the fall elections, but won't be, have filed. Bill Brady reported $866K in receipts, mostly loans that appear to be from himself; $1.2M spent, and $12,254.88 available. He owes $400K in loans, some to himself and some to banks, though I'd tend to assume he personally guaranteed those; otherwise, should the PAC default, the banks could find themselves unwitting contributors, as it were. Too, Ron Gidwitz filed with $7.0M in receipts, mostly from himself, $7.2M spent and ending with $2,690.04 cash on hand. He owes himself $4.0 million. A related fund, the Illinois Turn Around Team, reported $365K in receipts (including $250K transferred from the main Gitwitz PAC), $811K spent, and $54K available.
Other interesting PACs: Chicago Mayor Richard M Daley showed $63K in receipts, nearly all of that interest payments; $329K spent and $1.9M available. The Illinois Civil Justice League's JUSTPAC reports $63K in, $142K out, and $58K available.
And the reports keep coming.
