Final Report on Judicial Fundraising -- Primary 2012

Uninteresting as our Lake County judicial primaries were, one of the most interesting aspects of elections is often the fundraising. The quarterly campaign finance reports for the first quarter of 2012 – the key period leading up to the primary – are now in and, well, they’re pretty boring, too. But they are summarized here just the same. To help spice things up a bit, I’ll also include the First District Supreme Court primary, which featured expenditures in excess of $1 million by the eventual Democratic nominee, incumbent Justice Mary Jane Theis.
