“Billionaire Ken Griffin has given $20 million to Governor Bruce Rauner’s campaign for an election that is 18 months away. It is believed to be the single biggest contribution by a non-candidate.
‘It’s offensive to watch people run as populists, but govern for the plutocracy, Illinois is not for sale,’ Ameya Pawar, Democratic candidate for Illinois governor, said.
Pawar said he is proud of the $330,000 dollars he has raised so far but his small grassroots contributions will likely never add up to the $70 million Rauner currently has in his re-election coffers–$50 million of it came from Rauner, $20 million from Griffin.”
