Cegelis Lags Behind Roskam in Fundraising

Self professed "insurgent" Christine Cegelis continues to lag behind State Sen Pete Roskam(R-Wheaton) in fundraising for a bid for the US House from Illinois's 6th. She quotes US Rep Rahm Emanuel(D-Chicago), chairman of the Democratic National Congressional Committee, as having advised her to "raise money." Cegelis and Roskam are running for the seat that will be vacated by US Rep Henry Hyde(R-Addison), who is retiring. The contest between the two(presuming Cegelis survives the primary) is bound to be one of the state's most spirited, and is rumored to be the equivalent of a Tier 1 target for the DNCC.
