Arent Fox Counsel Brett Kappel Mentioned in Chicago Tribune Article about Campaign Fundraising
Arent Fox Political Law counsel Brett G. Kappel is mentioned by The Chicago Tribune in an article about candidates’ campaign fundraising efforts. The article focuses on the contest between incumbent US Sen. Dick Durbin (D–IL) — who is running for reelection — and Illinois State Sen. Jim Oberweis (R).
The article explains that Mr. Durbin is far outspending Mr. Oberweis in the 2014 election cycle. It also states that Mr. Oberweis himself has donated most of his funds for his campaign. Mr. Kappel elaborates that there are no limits on how much federal candidates can give to their own campaigns, though normal limits apply to donations from their spouses and other relatives.
