Today Representative Jeff Harris' campaign for Attorney General will report raising more than $110,034.99 in his 8-Day report with the Missouri Ethics Commission. This impressive total comes on the heels of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch poll which showed Harris winning the Democratic primary by 10 percentage points.
Harris' fundraising report also comes one day after the Kansas City Star endorsed him in its Sunday edition and just a week after he also won the endorsement of the Columbia Daily Tribune. Harris also has earned the endorsements of former Governor Roger Wilson, former Governor Warren Hearnes, former Lt. Governor Joe Maxwell and Senate Democratic Leader Maida Coleman.
"Our campaign is peaking and we have the momentum," said Harris. "Our major endorsements, our lead in the polls, and the incredible level of support we are receiving from regular folks across Missouri will all add up to victory on August 5."
Since announcing his candidacy more than a year ago, Jeff Harris has raised a total of $934,669.58 from more than 2,900 individual contributions, and unlike his two rivals, his campaign reports absolutely no debt. The campaign reported more than $190,000 in cash on hand with every penny being spent almost immediately in the final days.
Harris' campaign also continued its dominant online fundraising effort, raising more than $25,000 online through its website in the month of July alone.
