Gery Chico, who finished second in the mayoral race on Tuesday, raised about $3.5 million in the same time frame. Details on how Emanuel spent his campaign money have not been revealed because state campaign finance reports are not due for a few more months; however, it's clear that a significant amount was spent on television and radio commercials.
Like Emanuel, Mayor Daley was also a prolific fundraiser, although he only raised $6.8 million and spent around $5.4 million in his 2007 campaign for mayor, state records show.
