Contribution Limits Lifted for Chicago Mayor Runoff Election
Mayoral candidate Paul Vallas loaned $100,100 to his campaign after advancing to the April 4 runoff election against Brandon Johnson.
The two candidates may now receive unlimited contributions because contribution limits do not apply in any city race where the self-funding or independent expenditure threshold of $100,000 is exceeded.
The city’s pay-to-play limits on campaign contributions remain in place.
Companies and people doing business with the city or its sister agencies are limited to contributing $1,500 to any one candidate per year.
