Jesus “Chuy” Garcia decreases campaign spending from last election

Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, Democratic congressman of Illinois 4th congressional district, significantly decreased his re-election campaign spending from $1 million in 2017-2018 to only about half million so far in the 2019-2020 election cycle.

Andrew Mayersohn, committee researcher at the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonprofit organization that analyzes political spending, said Garcia is spending less since he doesn’t face any “serious threats” in this campaign cycle. His opponent Jesus Solorio has only raised $755.
