Rauner Keeps Fundraising Lead in GOP Governor Race

CHICAGO (AP) -- The three lawmakers running for the Republican nomination for Illinois governor continue to lag behind newcomer Bruce Rauner in fundraising.

According to campaign finance reports filed Wednesday, state Sen. Kirk Dillard raised about $328,000 in the final quarter of 2013. He had about $144,000 in his campaign fund at year's end.

State Sen. Bill Brady raised about $73,000 and ended the quarter with about $270,000 in his accounts.

Treasurer Dan Rutherford reported late Tuesday he raised about $393,000 and had about $1.37 million on hand.

Rauner says he raised more than $4 million during the same period.

The reports provide the most up-to-date look at each campaign's finances before the March 18 primary.

Brady, Dillard and Rutherford have all insisted money can't buy elections.
