Contribution Limits Lifted in Chicago Mayoral Race
Contribution limits have been lifted for individuals running in the 2019 Chicago mayoral race.
Per state law, the limits are lifted for all candidates in a local race once a candidate contributes $100,000 to his or her own campaign within a year of the election.
Mayor Rahm Emmanuel has a major fundraising advantage; he raised over $24 million in the 2015 race.
Businessman Willie Wilson says he made a $100,000 contribution on Wednesday in an effort to level the playing field for other candidates.
