Dold's War Chest Nears $1 Million
Congressman raised $367,665 for the quarter that ended Sept. 30.
Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) has nearly $1 million in the bank to finance his reelection campaign as of Sept. 30, according to a report filed Thursday with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
Dold raised $367,665 for the quarter that ended Sept. 30, according to the FEC. He has collected $1,276,067.86 since he was elected less than a year ago.
None of Dold’s potential Democratic opponents — Deerfield management consultant Brad Schneider,Waukegan community organizer Ilya Sheyman or Mundelein attorney Vivek Bavda — have filed their reports yet. They are due Oct. 15
Sheyman told Patch earlier this month he had raised more than $140,000 from over 4,800 donors as of Sept. 30. For the entire campaign he has collected more than $250,000. Schneider’s donors gave him $321,085 for the quarter ending June 30.
More than half of Dold’s haul ($182,166) came from organizations or political action committees including fellow members of Congress. He also garnered $170,185 from individuals, most from the 10th Congressional District.
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston) has not yet reported her fundraising totals. She does not have a Republican opponent.
