Republican State Sen. Norma Champion's campaign is touting her third quarter fundraising report while taking aim at her Democratic opponent Doug Harpool and his contributors, in a new press release.
The Headline: "Springfield Voters Support Champion, Big City Liberals Prop Up Harpool."
According to third quarter fundraising numbers, Champion's political committee showed $58,324 in contributions "from Springfield families and businesspeople." Champion reports $199,881 cash on hand.
"Candidate Harpool raised less than half the amount Senator Champion's campaign did, accepting more than $15,000 from liberal and special interest groups whose values are out of line with Springfield families, including NARAL and Missourians for Choice. And Harpool has aligned himself with big city union bosses by accepting large amount from unions in Kansas City and St. Louis," blasts the release from Champion aide Mike Barnett.
"Doug Harpool continues to prove that his liberal stances are inconsistent with Southwest Missouri values by accepting money from pro-abortion groups and big city liberals," Barnett added.
