Illinois Senate hopeful Mark Kirk internal fund-raising memo: What he didn't want you to know

| No Comments

Hat tip to Rich Miller over at Capitol Fax Blog for his scoop about Illinois Senate GOP candidate Mark Kirk's local and national fund-raising efforts. Miller has a copy of an internal Kirk memo---detailing all of Kirk's national travels, donors and potential donors, goals and what internet play yielded the most campaign cash.

Since the start of the Senate campaign, the Kirk campaign has been reluctant to make public information about where Kirk goes to raise money--even what cities he was visiting for fund-raisers. It's not been for my lack of asking. Now and then I would get information, but not on any consistent basis. Democrat Alexi Giannoulias campaign was better in sharing information about his fund-raising travels and local events but could have been more forthcoming.
