The campaigns are required to file the money they've raised in the month of July
Steelman Reports $329,952
Hulshof Reports $236,857
Steelman holds $503,318 on hand; Hulshof has $426,772 left to spend
But Steelman Loans Herself $200,000, Bringing the Total in Loans to $770,000
Which raises the question . . . Would she be plowing more of her own money into a race she didn't think she had a shot of winning?
ALSO . . . Democrat Sam Page OUTRAISES Republican Peter Kinder in July in the race for Lieutenant Governor . . . Kinder reports taking in $41,681 for this July reporting period; Page took in $113,809
"Missourians are voting with dollars," Page said in a statement. "They are serious about wanting change in Jefferson City."
His performance mirrors the second quarterly report filed July 15, when Page surprised everyone by out-pacing Kinder. Challengers rarely out-fundraise their incumbent opponents, notes the Page campaign.
