Patrick Ouimet shows $92K from the Senate Dems; his first major money from someone other than himself.

A few candidates in contested races have filed pre-election forms, including Elaine Nekritz, Robert Churchill, Aaron Schock, and Mary K O’Brien.

The Prairie Political Action Committee, a federal PAC associated with Sen. Durbin’s staff, has given $92.5K to the Illinois Democratic County Chairmans Association. And they aren’t even on the ballot this year.
