Illinois 2010 Elections: Dan Burke Swamps Opponent Rudy Lozano in Money Race

State Rep. Dan Burke

(Chicago, IL) — January 22, 2010. In the money race it’s not even close.

State Rep. Dan Burke (D-Chicago) is swamping opponent Rudy Lozano in the fund-raising contest, raising $155,457 to Lozano’s $42,467 in the last six months, according to Illinois State Board of Elections records.

After spending $103,531, Burke, who had $277,239 coming into the period, still has a whopping $329,164 in the bank, compared to $40,097 spent by Lozano, who started off with $28,515, and has $30,885 remaining or only less 10% of Burke’s stash.


In 2010 alone, Burke has pulled in more than $77,000 and Lozano has raised only $5,000.

With an overwhelming cash advantage, Burke has been able to flood the 82% Hispanic district with lawn signs and mail and knock Lozano back on his heels.

In the race for money, Burke has won hands down.

And in the race for votes, it gives him an edge.

  1. And presumably, you’re an objective source of information or a tool of the Springfield system?

  2. Chicagoan,

    What I am is a blogger, and I have worked on state house races for years many years ago; so, I have a sense of perspective on state legislative campaigns.

    By the way, do you always load a question with an insult? It’s a nasty habit that will yield you few partisans for your point.

    Thank you for reading.
