SPRINGFIELD - Political Analyst Kent Redfield told Metro News Service that when it comes to money, the 2014 gubernatorial race will be like nothing voters have ever seen before.
"In 2006, Rod Blagojevich spent about $22 million," Redfield said, "I think those numbers are going to be a lot bigger, and you are going to have two candidates rather than one having that kind of money. So I think you can double that on both sides."
"The Republican Governor's Association spent nearly $8 million on the Bill Brady campaign four years ago," Redfield said, "You're going to have a huge amount of national union money coming in, national corporate money coming in. These are huge contrasts of money."
Redfield said it’ll probably be the most expensive race in Illinois history.
