I don’t usually look at Federal election contributions, but I pulled up 16th congressional district Democratic Party candidate Robert Abboud’s records and found something interesting.
The first contribution was made September 30, 2007.
Another thousand was given December 31, 2007. Sounds like a last minute before the filing deadline contribution, but I don’t know Federal campaign reporting deadlines.
Another $300 showed up February 5, 2008.
For those of you who don’t remember when the Illinois primary elections were held, that’s the day.
So, Congressman Don Manzullo knew that Borling was strongly supporting his Democratic Party opponent well before the “official” endorsement press release was sent out.
Each candidate checks who makes contributions to the opponent.
