Ethan Hastert , a Republican waging a 2010 campaign in Illinois’ 14th District, collected $86,600 in this year’s second quarter — all of it on June 30, the last day of the reporting period.

If Hastert’s name sounds familiar, it should: he’s a son of former Republican Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (1987-2007), who gave his son $10,000 from his political action committee, Keep Our Mission PAC .  

Ethan Hastert, who organized his campaign committee just before the end of the second quarter, also got $5,000 from the leadership PAC of Illinois freshman Republican Rep. Aaron Schock , who represents the Peoria-area 18th District.
