Over the last few weeks, John Sullivan and Randy Frese have each garnered large contributions
The cash register continues to ring in the 47th District State Senate race.
Over the last few weeks, both incumbent State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) and his Republican opponent, Adams County Circuit Clerk Randy Frese of Paloma, have received large individual contributions.
Contributions received during the third quarter do not have to be reported until mid-October, but both men have been reporting their contributions in excess of $1,000.
Frese’s largest contribution came from Volunteers for Shimkus, the committee for Congressman John Shimkus (R-Collinsville), in amount of $25,000 and he had brought in a little more than $40,000 in contributions since the last quarterly reporting statement.
Sullivan’s largest contribution came from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) in the amount of $20,000 and he brought in just over $60,000 in contributions since the last quarterly reporting statement.
