Door Now Open for Big Money in Chicago Mayor’s Race

“Big money will now be a big factor in the Chicago mayor’s race. A $100,000 donation to his own campaign by millionaire businessman Willie Wilson has now lifted the campaign donation limit. That has opened the door for wealthy donors to get involved in the race very early in the campaign.
Without Wilson’s donation– or another candidate receiving a similar gift– individuals would have been limited to giving $5,600; corporations and labor organizations $11,100; and political action committees $55,400.
That could benefit the candidates who have money now.”
