The end of year financial disclosures filed by Congressmen Don Manzullo and Adam Kinzinger are not as easy to find as I would have wished, but having found them, I conclude that the two are evenly matched as far as available funds go.
Manzullo reports $522,864 at the end of December, while Kinzinger had $651,089.
That gives Kinzinger a $128,000 lead, but they both appear to have enough money to make significant TV buys in the Downstate markets that cover their ring-around-the-collar counties congressional district that Illinois Democrats drew.
Manzullo raised $160,000 during the three months, while Kinzinger took in $201,000.
Kinzinger spent more than Manzullo. The totals were $201,000 for Kinzinger to Manzullo’s $118,000.
