venture capitalist and Republican candidate for Illinois governor Bruce
Rauner is connected to another new political action committee called
the Reform PAC.
Since Monday, the new PAC already hauled in $94,000 from Rauner and other wealthy businessmen including Jack Roeser and Richard Uihlein, according to an Illinois State Board of Elections filing.
"Those guys know how to party," Jack Morrison, deputy director of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform, wrote in a post on the organization's website. "What they want to reform is anyone's guess, but it's an interesting gathering of people."
Some details also surfaced last week about a new Ballot Initiative Committee outside of Rauner's election committee that's tied to the gubernatorial candidate. The new Committee for Legislative Reform and Term Limits is focused on putting the issue of term limits for state lawmakers on the November 2014 election ballot. As of last week, the committee already brought in $205,000.
