Bustos raised more than $1 million in 2013 for her rematch against former Rep. Bobby Schilling (R-Ill.), a strong figure for the freshman congresswoman.
Schilling has yet to announce his fourth quarter fundraising numbers. He had $160,000 in the bank after his first three months in the race. The one-term former congressman historically has not been a strong fundraiser but is known as a skilled grassroots campaigner.
Bustos won their first race by six points, helped some by President Obama's presence on the ticket in his home state. The district leans Democratic, and Bustos is viewed by most as the slight favorite — a view helped by her latest solid fundraising quarter.
