Durbin, Oberweis, Truax: Pre-primary FEC fundraising reports

Sen. Dick Durbin D-Ill. faces no opponent in the Tuesday Illinois Democratic Senate primary, and his main political warchest overwhelmingly swamps either of the Republicans he will face: first time candidate Doug Truax of Downers Grove or state Sen. Jim Oberweis R-Sugar Grove. Durbin, from Springfield, starts the November general election race with $5.7 million cash-on hand.

Here’s a fundraising snapshot of the Illinois U.S. Senate contenders, based on pre-primary reports filed with the Federal Election Commission covering Jan. 1, 2014 through Feb. 26, 2014.
