Billionaire J.B. Pritzker (D) “pumped another $7 million into his self-funded campaign,” according to a recent filing with the State Board of Elections. “So far, Pritzker … has put all $21.2 million into his race for the nomination.”

“With the March primary still months away, Pritzker already is approaching at least one state record — the most money spent by a Democratic candidate on himself in a primary. Right now, the record is the $29 million” self-funded by 2004 Senate candidate Blair Hull (D). (Chicago Tribune)
