Guess I should have stayed up later.
I packed it in at 11:11 last night, disappointed that I could not write a combined article about spending in the McHenry County Sheriff’s race between Bill Prim and Jim Harrison.
Harrison filed his campaign disclosure form eight minutes before the midnight deadline.
In the article below, you can see that victor Bill Prim spent $14,287.89.
Now, I see that opponent Jim Harrison spent about the same amount–$14,359.23
Harrison raised $12,161 during the October run-up to the election to Prim’s $12,376.
Since the Prim article looks at expenditures first, let’s do the same here.
