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.)

CHICAGO DEFENDER
— State of Illinois Releases Disproportionately Impacted Areas for Cannabis Program’s Social Equity Applicants (DIERSEN: Wheaton is the DuPage County Seat. The Democrats who run the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (IDCEO) have outrageously designated western Wheaton as being a disproportionately impacted area (DIA), that is, an area that has high rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration related to cannabis as well as poverty and unemployment. Needless-to-say, that must be a mistake. I ask the following and everyone else who has an interest in Wheaton to ask the IDCEO to immediately rescind its DIA designation: Wheaton Mayor and City Council members, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township officers and trustees, DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board members, and federal and Illinois officials who represent or seek to represent any part of Wheaton.) 
https://chicagodefender.com/state-of-illinois-releases-disproportionately-impacted-areas-for-cannabisprograms-social-equity-applicants/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As the most equity-centric adult use cannabis program in the nation prepares to enter its next phase, the Pritzker Administration is releasing maps that designate which parts of the state qualify as “disproportionately impacted areas” for social equity applicants.  More than 2 million Illinoisans live in the 683 Census tracts that make up the disproportionately impacted areas. (View the map  here https://www2.illinois.gov/dceo/Pages/CannabisEquity.aspx   The Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity determined the disproportionately impacted areas using criteria established in the new state law. To be designated as a disproportionately impacted area, a Census tract must have high rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration related to cannabis, among other qualifications including poverty and unemployment. “As Illinois continues its path toward putting equity at the forefront of the state’s new adult-use cannabis expansion, it’s important to create opportunities in communities that have been hardest hit by the war on marijuana,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “Not only will social equity applicants receive points on their applications, but many applicants will also get grants, technical assistance, low-interest loans and fee reductions and waivers. Taken together, these efforts will do more than any other state in the nation has done to focus on equity.”)

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/20/us/trust-congress-military-police.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Americans trust police officers, military leaders and local public officials more than members of Congress, tech leaders and journalists, according to a study published by the Pew Research Center on Thursday. . .Trust in journalists varied depending on the question and the respondent’s political affiliation. Roughly half of Americans said journalists care about people like them, whereas nearly as many — 46 percent — said journalists rarely care. Republicans’ belief that journalists would fairly cover all sides of an issue (31 percent) was dramatically lower than Democrats’ (74 percent). Two-thirds of Americans think that journalists behave unethically some or most of the time.)

— Democrats Cite Discredited SPLC to Sic the IRS on Conservative ‘Hate Groups’ – TYLER O’NEIL
https://pjmedia.com/trending/dems-cite-discredited-splc-to-sic-the-irs-on-hate-groups/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yet (LaHood) also warned that “the IRS should not be used as a political tool to discriminate against organizations that differ in viewpoints. … We cannot use political disagreement as a metric to define hate speech or a hate group. This type of labeling can and has led to violent acts.” “I know my colleague just referenced the Southern Poverty Law Center,” LaHood said. “In 2012, an armed man named Floyd Lee Corkins walked into the Family Research Council Washington headquarters with the intent to shoot and kill as many of its employees as possible. He was apprehended, but not before wounding the non-profit’s business manager. Mr. Corkins later told the FBI that he had seen the nonprofit group listed as an anti-gay hate group on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website.” LaHood did not call for the IRS to revoke the SPLC’s non-profit status (although some, notably Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), have called for an investigation, not because the SPLC is liberal but because it only targets Republicans for its accusations of “hate.”). He merely joined other Republicans in warning that government attempts to crack down on “hate” could discriminate against lawful organizations based on their political viewpoints.)
