SHARE Paul Ryan to visit Illinois after Romney’s $4.3 million haul here

Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan plans an Oct. 5 fund-raiser in Chicago, hoping to match Mitt Romney’s haul from his last month visit to Illinois.

In September, Romney hoped to bring in $3 million at a private, pricey event at a private residence in Lake Forest. A source behind the event, however, said Romney raised $4.3 million.

The Lake Forest soiree cost a minimum of $2,500 and up to $75,800 per person.
