Champaign Urbana- News Gazette
I thought I was onto something last week when, looking through state campaign disclosure reports, I saw that Attorney General Lisa Madigan had reported only $22,500 in itemized contributions of $1,000 or more since March 31.
Since Madigan had reported $831,190 in campaign donations in the first quarter of this year, clearly that $22,500 figure meant that she had dialed down her fundraising. And maybe that meant she wasn't running for the Democratic nomination for governor after all.
I'm glad I didn't write that story.
