Aiming to return to Congress, Republican Bob Dold of Kenilworth says he's raised more than a half-million dollars for his rematch next year against 10th District Democratic U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider of Deerfield.
Dold, who served one term in Congress, says his quarterly tally due Monday will show more than $540,000 in receipts since his campaign took off less than two months ago.
"We're pleased and delighted with how it's going so far," he said.
Schneider strategist Mark Bergman said the Democrat's campaign is still counting donations and would release its numbers by Monday.
Schneider narrowly beat Dold in 2012 by about one percentage point, capping a big year for Democrats in the suburbs and statewide.
Dold's early fundraising work shows how hotly contested the congressional race for the 10th District could be. Money raised by the candidates likely will be supplemented by cash spent by both parties as the rematch is set to be one of the most-watched in the country.
The 10th District includes eastern and central Lake County and northern Cook County.
