CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Freshman Democratic U.S. Rep. Sean Casten builds up war chest of more than $1.4 million in advance of GOP challenge from Jeanne Ives – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-sean-casten-congressional-fundraising-20191015-xncrdflmlbgbld2fp4qg7jy6o4-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Federal Election Commission campaign reports showed Ives, who announced her candidacy in mid-July, raised $340,298 through September. After spending $117,500, she said she had about $222,796 on hand. Among Ives’ contributors was conservative megadonor Richard Uihlein, who gave her the maximum $5,600 for the primary and general election. Uihlein, the Lake Forest businessman who owns Uline packing materials company, was by far the biggest donor to Ives’ campaign in advance of her near upset of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner in last year’s GOP primary, giving her $2.5 million of the $4.2 million she raised. Ives’ campaign also received donations from two conservative organizations, reporting $5,000 from the House Freedom Fund and $2,500 from the Susan B. Anthony candidate fund. . .In dropping out of the contest, Sanguinetti alluded to problems fundraising, which was backed up by her report with the FEC. She raised only $39,318 from July through September and had only $36,539 in cash on hand to start this month. Last week, Gordon “Jay” Kinzler, a transplant surgeon from Glen Ellyn who has unsuccessfully sought other offices previously, announced he also would run in the Republican primary for Casten’s seat.)
— With nearly $1.2 million in the bank, U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood has a healthy fundraising lead over potential Republican challengers – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-lauren-underwood-congressional-fundraising-20191016-7l22xq5e6bcntnsfsdrqkrlbuu-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The top fundraiser among Republicans trying to win the right to challenge Underwood in November 2020 was state Sen. Jim Oberweis of Sugar Grove. Oberweis, unsuccessful in previous bids for Congress and the U.S. Senate, raised $329,493 and reported $551,578 in cash on hand. Oberweis, a dairy magnate and financial investor, loaned his campaign $200,000 of the cash he raised from July through September. He now has made a total of $400,000 in loans to his congressional bid.)
