Republican State Rep. Barbara Wheeler became the third local state legislature to report receiving a contribution from Governor Bruce Rauner’s campaign fund.
On May 20th, she filed an A-1 (required for donations $1,000 or more) with the State Board of Elections.
Previously, State Representatives Mike Tryon and Steve Andersson reported receiving $8,000.
State Senator Karen McConnaughay informed McHenry County Blog that she was returning the check sent to her.
Neither State Senator Pam Althoff nor State Senator Dan Duffy have filed reports of having received money from Rauner’s Political Action Committee.
