Catalina Lauf, Ted Gradel and James Marter headlined fundraisers
Thank you to commenters, in particular Correcting, for asking for the information about in-person fundraisers for Jim Oberweis which began in earnest within a few days of Phase 4 being implemented of Restore Illinois.
Thus far, McHenry County Blog has determined there were at least 3 in-person fundraisers headlined by former primary opponents of State Senator Jim Oberweis:
- June 29 in Woodstock, headlining Catalina Lauf
- July 1 in Naperville, hosted by Ted Gradel
- July 2 in Yorkville, headlining James Marter
McHenry County Blog has learned last Monday’s fundraiser in Woodstock took place, although due to a last minute development, Ms. Lauf was not in attendance. According to our source, members of the McHenry County Republican Party enjoyed a night getting back together in-person and talking politics for the first time since March 21.
Word is there will be another Oberweis fundraiser in McHenry County very soon with Catalina Lauf present to formally endorse Oberweis’ candidacy against Congresswoman Lauren Underwood this fall.
Last Thursday, Ted Gradel tweeted the following:
Finally, the Yorkville fundraiser was tweeted by LaSalle County Committeeperson Beth Findley:
Curious, nothing was posted on Kendall County Republican Chairman James Marter’s social media sites.
As McHenry County Blog learns about more in-person events in or near McHenry County for the 14th congressional district, we will post the information to our readers.
REMINDER: Second quarter campaign disclosure reports to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) are due on July 15, and as candidates in the 6th and 14th districts general election file, it will be posted here on the blog.
