The 1st QUARTER
Springfield Rep. Bob Dixon raised $5,407 dollars over the past three months for his 2010 bid to win the Queen City's State Senate seat.
Dixon, who is so far the only announced candidate for Sen. Norma Champion's District #30 seat, took in $5,050 in individual contributions from January through March. He also received a $357 "in-kind" donation from Cady Online Media in Springfield. Campaign finance reports for state and federal office are due Wednesday.
Dixon is reporting $17,369 dollars on hand to spend.
Almost half of Dixon's contributions this quarter came from a single donor: Linda Jared, of Rogersville, who gave him $2,500.
Dixon also received $1,000 from Enterprise Park Lanes, $500 from Tom Fowler, $500 from Green County Auditor Cindy Stein, $500 from Penmac Personnel Services and $300 from a committee called, "Citizens for New Health Care Concepts."
District #138 State Rep. Sara Lampe, who is viewed as a potential opponent to Dixon but has not yet made an announcement about her intentions, did not report raising a single dollar during the first quarter. In her April disclosure form, Lampe reported receiving a $215 "in-kind" contribution from the Missouri AFL-CIO for registration.
Lampe's report is mostly full of expenditures for her 2008 re-election campaign to the House. She has $6,623 on hand to spend.
