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.
