SPRINGFIELD, Illinois: Campaign finance reports have been release for the stat and the amount of money spent in the 2011 campaign year totaled near $6.4 million. The Illinois Board of elections noted that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Illinois Senate President John Cullerton raised around two-thirds of the total money reported in the state. But there was a gap between how much was raised and how much was spent on campaigns overall, while $6.4 million was reported as being raised, $12.7 was reported as being spent by various candidates. Several candidates though still have not filed their campaign finance reports yet to the Board. Finance reports also showed that most Chicago elected officials raised a fair amount of their money from people or organizations outside of the city.[1]
