Since campaign contribution limits were lifted Aug. 28, most of the money has gone into the governor's race, but the attorney general battle is also attracting some big spenders.
In the last 26 days, Democratic attorney general candidate Chris Koster has raised $675,000 in oversized contributions, according to documents on file with the Missouri Ethics Commission.
That figure includes another $37,500 listed in a 48-hour report filed Tuesday. The top contribution in the new batch was $10,000 from St. Louis lawyer Martin Green. Koster's top contribution so far has been $200,000 from The Democratic Attorneys General Association.
Koster's opponent, Republican Michael Gibbons, has raised $287,650 in $5,000+ contributions, according to the Ethics Commission documents.
