Multimillionaire Bruce Rauner just pumped another $1 million into his campaign fund, finance records show.

The gubernatorial candidate who has been far out-raising his opponents has pumped millions into his campaign.

Rauner has donated more than $3 million to his campaign, a move that last year blew the caps on donations for all the candidates — including Democratic incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn.

Rauner has dominated the airwaves in the four-way primary race. He has said he was prepared to spend millions on his candidacy.
