Notes M. Blair Hull was the founder, chairman, and CEO of The Hull Group, Inc. a Chicago-based securities brokerage firm. In 1999, Hull sold the Hull Group to the Goldman-Sachs Group, Inc., an investment banking and securities firm headquartered in New York City, for $531 million.

From 1993 through December 31, 2002, M. Blair Hull gave $757,000 to candidates for Illinois statewide constitutional and legislative office, 99% of which was contributed to Democrats.

Hull is putting together his team for the '04 campaign. Rick Ridder, a Denver political consultant, and Fred Lebed, who has managed a dozen statewide races in Illinois, have signed up as senior strategists. James O'Connor, a former aide to Cook County Board President John Stroger, is Hull's political director. Media strategist Anita Dunn of Washington, D.C., who is producing television spots for Blagojevich, also is working for Hull. Anna Bennett, a Washington-based pollster, has conducted a benchmark survey for Hull
