Quinn Leads Fundraising in Governor's Race

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Campaign finance reports show Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has a sizable fundraising lead over the five other candidates vying for his job.

The Chicago Democrat raised about $1 million from April 1 to June 30 and now has $2.3 million in available funds.

Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley is the Chicago Democrat challenging Quinn in the March primary. He's raised more than $796,000.

On the Republican side, venture capitalist Bruce Rauner of Winnetka brought in $916,000. But campaign expenses reduced his cash on hand to $642,000. State treasurer Dan Rutherford of Chenoa raised $433,000. Republican State Sens. Bill Brady of Bloomington and Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale brought in $61,000 and $293,000, respectively.

The second-quarter filings were due to the state board of elections Monday.
