D-2 Reports Give Inside Look At Candidates’ Finances

 

Editor Paul Osborne

     The D-2 Quarterly Report has been filed with the Illinois State Board of Elections this month by candidates involved in the races we’ve been covering. The D-2s report candidates’ finances, as in how much they raised and spent during the quarter. The latest report was for the third quarter that ended on Sept. 30th. You can tell a lot about campaigns by not only the amount of money raised, but where the money came from. A detailed look at income and expenses for each candidate can be found on the Board of Elections website at www.elections.il.gov. Following are the bottom lines for each candidate seeking your vote on Nov. 6.
