IL: Refusing Corporate Dollars, Green Party Gubernatorial Candidate Struggles to Compete

From Pantagraph:
The Green Party candidate for governor sent a desperate plea for donations to his supporters this week, saying his campaign is strapped for cash. "Circumstances force me to be blunt: My campaign is REALLY hurting for money right now," Rich Whitney said in a letter. "Just when we need to be peaking, so that we can get some radio and cable TV ads and buy yard and window signs, and numerous other essentials, we are instead scraping the bottom of the barrel."
 
Whitney, a Carbondale attorney making his second bid for the state's highest office, is hoping to get enough money to take his message to television and radio. But for now, with less than seven weeks before voters cast their ballots, Whitney is asking for supporters to keep his campaign up and running.
