Money Spent in Governor's Race Surges

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 dollars was spent in the final three months of 2017. It's no surprise that 9 out of every 10 dollars spent, was spent by the campaigns of Governor Bruce Rauner and Democrat J.B. Pritzker. Both candidates spent 13 million dollars apiece. While Rauner has more in the bank with 56 million dollars compared to Pritzker's 8 million, Rauner raised 3 million dollars during the period, Pritzker $21 million.
