Two candidates in the upcoming March primary are pouring big bucks into their own campaigns.
Republican Bruce Rauner has given another million dollars to his campaign for governor.
Rauner has now put up three million of his own money in his bid to defeat three rivals for the Republican nomination.
And GOP U.S. Senate candidate Jim Oberweis has lent his campaign half-a-million dollars. That’s five times more than Oberweis has received in donations from other sources since launching his campaign last year.
Oberweis is one of two Republicans competing to face Democrat Dick Durbin in November.
