Quinn, Daley build contrasting campaign funds
CHICAGO (AP) — The two Democratic candidates for governor are showing a clear contrast in how they're building their campaign funds.
Gov. Pat Quinn raised $1 million in the three-month report ending June 30. About $625,000 came from individuals. The remaining donations came from local trade and labor unions and political action committees of two fellow Democrats: state Sens. Don. Harmon and John Mulroe.
Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley's national political connections are on display in his fundraising.
Daley raised $796,000. He received contributions from former White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles, former General Motors CEO Ed Whitacre and members of Chicago's Pritzker family.
Attorney general Lisa Madigan_who announced Monday she would not run for governor— has a $4.3 million war chest.
