Spending in Gubernatorial Primary Exceeded $150 Million

Spending in the Illinois gubernatorial primary exceeded $150 million, with the lion’s share of cash coming from incumbent Governor Bruce Rauner and billionaire JB Pritzker, who will face off in the general election in November. The Illinois governor’s race is on par to be the most expensive in U.S. history, a record set in the 2010 California gubernatorial race at $280 million. Rauner spent about $176 per vote, while Pritzker spent about $119. (Sun-Times)
