SHARE Rep. Kinzinger bolsters campaign war chest

WASHINGTON – Rep. Adam Kinzinger R-Ill., who faces no significant GOP primary opposition in 2016, raised $310,338 in the last quarter and has $1,035,078 cash on hand, according to Federal Election Commission records.

So far, no major Democratic candidate has surfaced to run against Kinzinger for the 16th congressional district seat, which includes counties north, west and south of Chicago.

The latest FEC report covers fundraising for April, May and June.

Kinzinger is a pilot in the Air National Guard. Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld – and a former congressman who once represented the north shore suburbs – headlined a fundraiser for Kinzinger last May 5 at Gibson’s in Rosemont.
