Ill. super PACs raise $1M, could affect election
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Super PACs are bringing more than $1 million to Illinois legislative races -- but what impact the unexpected campaign finance phenomenon will have in the Nov. 6 balloting is up for debate.
Elections records show five of the ten super PACs in Illinois have raised serious money and are spending on legislative races. Super PACs arose from court rulings that determined political committees unaffiliated with candidates or causes can spend unlimited money.
David Morrison of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform says the money can have a "huge impact" on state campaigns.
