Illinois: Schock Value: PACs Give $75,000 at D.C. Events

State Rep. Aaron Schock, the 26-year-old Republican nominee in the race to replace retiring Rep. Ray LaHood (R), said Wednesday that he raised more than $75,000 from political action committees while in Washington, D.C.

Schock, a rare GOP bright spot this cycle in the Land of Lincoln, will take on radio personality Colleen Callahan (D), who announced her candidacy earlier this week.

By a vote of local Democratic leaders, Callahan will be the ballot replacement for former NBA coach Dick Versace, the highly touted Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee recruit who unexpectedly dropped out of the race late last year.
