CHICAGO — In addition to spending more than $62 million en route to an easy victory in the June primary, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker also donated $24 million to the Democratic Governors Association, which then spent millions on TV ads encouraging Republicans to vote for his favorite. GOP challenger State Sen. Darren Bailey showed financial reports.

The reports, filed with the IRS under the DGA’s tax-exempt status and covering April through June, show Pritzker’s contribution was nearly half of the roughly $52 million the DGA has. raised during the quarter.
