Since yesterday was the deadline for filing campaign disclosure information, I decided to take a look at what happened in the Republican primary election for McHenry County State’s Attorney.
Incumbent Lou Bianchi outspent challenger Dan Regna by 1.8 to 1.
Bianchi spent $79,556 during the first six months of this year, while Regna laid out $47,048.
Coincidentally enough, Regna had $48,250 in outstanding loans.
$8,250 was from Regna himself, while Woodstock-based Woodford Development ponied up a whopping $30,000.
McHenry County Treasurer Bill LeFew and McHenry County Coroner Marlene Lantz both contributed $1,000 to Regna during the six-month period.
Regna has $78.27 left in his campaign fund.
Bianchi started July with $3,949.
Bianchi’s Democratic Party opponent Tom Cynor has $11,220.
He raised $16,080 since the McHenry County Democratic Central Committee slated him after the primary election. Only $100 of that amount seems to have come from someone other than the candidate himself.
Cynor spent $3,930, most–$2,410—on sign printing at Mt. Prospect’s Minuteman Press.
