The scoop from Washington

Duckworth, Walsh, Schneider, Dold, Biggert, Foster: FEC deadline looming

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--The GOP and Democratic candidates in the three biggest congressional races in Illinois are waiting until the last hours--and maybe minutes--on Sunday to file their latest fund-raising reports. They are due by midnight Sunday. Each contender sees a perceived advantage in letting the opponent file first. As of 10 p.m. est, no reports have been electronically filed with the Federal Election Commission from:

8th District, Democrat Tammy Duckworth and Republican Joe Walsh

10th District, Republican Bob Dold and Democrat Brad Schneider

11th District, Democrat Bill Foster, Republican Judy Biggert

Give it up already.

UPDATE
The Foster campaign told me they filed earlier Sunday--but the FEC website did not yet post their report.
