CHICAGO, March 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scott Lee Cohen, local businessman and entrepreneur, opened a campaign account this week with a hefty $220,000 deposit. Scott is running for Lieutenant Governor in the 2010 election and will take over President Obama's former field office in downtown Chicago.
