A Republican venture capitalist weighing a run for Illinois governor has raised $1.3 million in the last month. Bruce Rauner announced in March that he’d form an exploratory committee to  consider a 2014 bid for governor. He also began a statewide listening tour to  gauge interest from Illinois residents.
In a Tuesday news release Rauner’s committee announced that it raised $1.3
million since its March 5 inception. The money includes a $249,000 contribution
from Rauner.
Rauner’s statewide tour has included 20 stops so far. He says the support
exceeds his expectations.
Rauner says Illinois needs a political outsider to take on the “failed status
quo” in Springfield. This week he’ll stop in Rockford, Rosemont and Monroe
County.
Other potential GOP candidates include Congressman Aaron Schock and Illinois
Treasurer Dan Rutherford.
