RICHTON PARK—(ENEWSPF)—January 7, 2013. Robin Kelly, candidate for Illinois’ second Congressional district, released her fundraising numbers for the month of December this morning.  After entering the race on December 2, Kelly had 29 days to raise funds before the end of the filing period, which closed December 31.

Kelly amassed a warchest of $200,209 from 514 individual supporters in that short period, reinforcing her status as a frontrunner.

“I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from my neighbors across Chicago and the Southland,” Kelly said. “In Congress, I'll work with President Obama to fight for common sense gun control, to incentivize our small businesses to create jobs, to invest in our children and to stop the Tea Party’s efforts to gut Medicare and Social Security."

Over the same period of time, Kelly has established herself as the singular candidate in the race who is committed to common sense gun laws in Congress.

Today’s news comes on the heels of her Thursday announcement that she had filed well over 3,800 petition signatures, securing her place on the ballot.
