Dold Raises Over $600,000 for Campaign
Congressman has more than $1.6 million on hand.
Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) raised $602,407 for his reelection effort to his 10th Congressional District seat during the quarter ending March 30, according to a news release from his campaign.
Dold will face Deerfield management consultant Brad Schneider in the Nov. 6 general election. Schneider won the Democratic nomination with an eight-point victory over his nearest opponent in the March 20 primary.
Dold now has $1.64 in the bank and has raised $2.24 million since his election to Congress in 2010. Dold touts his ability to work with Democrats and demonstrate independence for his successful efforts.
“The residents of Illinois' 10th District want a Congressman who will tell them the truth and work in a constructive manner to put our country on a course towards fiscal health," Dold said in the release. "I have provided that independent leadership and worked in a bipartisan manner to get our country moving forward.”
Dold is running against Schneider in a reconfigured 10th District as a result of the new map passed last May by the Illinois General Assembly. Dold’s Kenilworth home is now located in the 9th District currently represented by Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston).
With approximately 70 percent of the current district contained in the new boundaries, Dold anticipates getting to know his new constituents. “I look forward to growing our team in the new parts of Illinois' 10th District," he said.
