Elmer Raises $11 K for Nixa House Bid

Nixa alderman Kevin Elmer raised just over $11,000 for his 2010 bid for State House during the second fundraising quarter.
Elmer, who was seriously considering a run for Congress, is running to replace the term-limited Rep. Jay Wasson in the 141st District.
Elmer announced his candidacy in June, so he had just a few weeks to fundraise before the June 30th deadline. The majority of his fundraising came from a $10,000 contribution by Carl Petty of Perico Insurance in Chesterfield, Mo. In total, Elmer raised $11,052.
Elmer also announced Wednesday that Clever Mayor Trisha Elam will serve as treasurer of his campaign.
"Her involvement is a testament to the fact that my platform of less taxes and increased personal freedoms resonates with the citizens of the 141st district," Elmer said in a statement.
