In a mass email Monday, the Pritzker campaign says they've drilled down into the voting stats from last Tuesday's gubernatorial bid – and despite Bruce Rauner giving over $57 M to his own campaign, the Pritzker people report embarrassing numbers for Rauner:
- We saw the highest voter turnout in an Illinois election since 1990
- This year was the first time Peoria County went blue in a gubernatorial election since 1968, Champaign County since 1936, DuPage County since 1932, and Kane County, since 1912!
- This was the lowest vote share for any incumbent Illinois governor in the last century
And it cost Pritzker a mere $147 Million of his own funds (Forbes says more like $171M) in the past year. Chump change for an investor worth an approximate $3.2 B.
Per VoteSmart .
As compared to incumbent Bruce Rauner spending over $57M to defend himself.
