State Sen. Daniel Biss (D) “raised over $825,000 in the third quarter and now sits with more than $2.6 million cash on hand.

“Donations came from more than 2,650 donors representing over 270 cities and towns across Illinois. Seventy-five percent of these donations were for under $100, and ninety-six percent came from in-state.” (release)

Philanthropist Chris Kennedy (D) raised “more than $1.05 million … in the third quarter,” including “a $250,000 personal contribution” from Kennedy.

“Nearly 8,000 contributions have come from about 5,300 individual contributors. … Nearly 80 percent of third quarter contributions came in at $100 or less. … Contributions to the campaign have come from donors in 90 of Illinois’ 102 counties.” (Capitol Fax)

“Kennedy … will report $1.2 million [on hand] to start October.”

Billionaire J.B. Pritzker (D) “unveiled a new 1-minute TV ad in which he discusses the loss of his mother to alcoholism at a young age following the death of his father.”

Pritzker also “unveiled a strategy to assist survivors of domestic violence with a focus on providing trauma-based services. … Under Pritzker’s plan, schools and community-based providers would use ‘trauma-informed treatment models’ to help children who witness domestic violence, following the use of ‘evidence-based screening, detection and prevention models’ to identify those who need assistance.”

“A group of various progressive organizations is holding a forum of the announced Democratic candidates for governor on Sunday. … More than 50 progressive organizations are sponsoring the debate, including Our Revolution Illinois, the Chicago Teachers Union, MoveOn and Progressive Democrats of America.” (Chicago Tribune)
