IN ILLINOIS’ 10TH CONGRESSIONAL DIST., DOLD OUTRAISES INCUMBENT SCHNEIDER IN 2Q

Common Sense in Illinois’s 10th –

Congressman Schneider (D-10th) quietly posted his second quarter fundraising numbers with the Federal Election Commission last night, close to deadline.  I now can see why:

  • Total contributions:$384,440.39
  • Total cash on hand:$531,166.16

Schneider has been raising money at a $4,200.00 a day clip with slightly more than one third of those funds coming from political PAC funds, and the rest individual donations.

I now understand why Schneider has been so quiet about his fundraising.  Compared to his challenger, Schneider’s numbers appear lackluster. As I posted on Sunday, his challenger, former Congressman Robert Dold, raised an astounding $546,187.00 in just 53 days since announcing his plans to retake this office, and has been raising money at a torrid $10,000.00 a day clip. Dold has $615,772.00 in cash on hand, and surpassed Schneider in this category in just 53 days.
