Can Alexi Survive Broadway?
Giannoulias' family bank was seized by federal regulators on April 24, 2010, and Alexi immediately went into damage control. Can he repair his image before November? Let's not forget about his ties to alleged check-kiter Nick Giannis and a host of other less than reputable characters.
Alexi Giannoulias couldn’t muster a $1 million fundraising haul during the last quarter.
The Democratic nominee for senate took in just $900,000 between April and June 30.
Opponent Mark Kirk took in $2.3 million during the same period, despite battling negative press reports relating to his exaggerated military record.
Giannoulias’ camp says he’s lagging because he won’t take funds from corporations.
Alexi is holding a press conference Thursday to criticize Kirk for taking funds from Wall Street.
