Of at least as much interest is how Tryon spent his campaign cash.

The House Republican Organization, successor to the House Republican Campaign Committee, got $5,250. Tryon is probably being assessed that amount, similar to way that former Republican Minority Leader Lee Daniels operated.

I see nothing given to John O’Neill, who is running for state representative against incumbent Democrat Jack Franks. Don’t you wonder how much better a campaign O’Neill could wage if the $5,000, plus given the House Republicans, presumably to be spent elsewhere, had been given to O’Neill.

Oh, well. There’s still time for a sizable contribution to O’Neill.

Republican candidate for governor Bill Brady received $500.

Tryon gave $1,000 to his long-time ally and campaign treasurer McHenry County Board Chairman Ken Koehler. Showing that the campaign contribution game sometimes has reciprocal arrangements, whether formal or informal, is Koehler’s contribution of $500 to Tryon.

Among the larger items in the other $16,200 in expenditures are:

  • $3,730 – Lincoln Square Apartments, Springfield, for rent
  • $2,175 – D’Andrea Banquets & Conference Center for fund raiser
  • $2,075 – Cheryl Meyers’ campaign assistance
  • $1,460 – Webb Enterprises for pens
  • $571 – Postage
  • $534 – 1776 for meetings
  • $591 – Creager Press, Schaumburg, for printing
  • $407 – John Evans, Rocks for meetings
  • $350 – Jean Shober, disclosure filing
  • $350 – Capitol Fax
  • $342 – Walmart, supplies and gift baskets
  • $300 – Madsen Sugden & Gottemoller for legal advice

Tryon is holding a fish boil August 3rd in Huntley at the Parkside Pub.  More details are below:
