“No one has come close to raising as much as Emanuel has, with more than a week until the deadline to file petitions to get on the Feb. 26 ballot.
Besides Daley, the former Obama White House chief of staff who has reported banking $2.4 million in campaign money, only Gery Chico, the attorney and former City Hall chief of staff who announced he’ll run after Emanuel bowed out, is the only other hopeful to top $1 million.
Daley reported taking in $296,000 this past week — $50,000 came from Paul Meister, Michael Sacks’ right-hand man at Grosvenor Capital Management. Sacks was Emanuel’s biggest donor and trusted adviser. He also pulled in a $75,000 donation from Marian “Cindy” Pritzker, Governor-elect J.B.Pritzker’s aunt, earlier this month.”Back To Blog
