During this election cycle, retired billionaire and educational voucher supporter Rex Sinquefield has poured hundreds of thousands into campaign committees through the 100 political action committees he created in 2007.
For the first time during this cycle, a contribution has been made in Rex Sinquefield's name. The billionaire gave $50,000 to Kenny Hulshof's gubernatorial campaign, according to a 48-hour report filed Friday with the Missouri Ethics Commission.
The contribution was among $99,850 reported by the Hulshof campaign. Hulshof also received $15,000 from the Missouri Society of Anesthesiologists $14,000 from the Armstrong-Teasdale law firm, $5,000 from Western Anesthesiology Associates, and $4,000 from South County Anesthesia Associates, according to the Ethics Commission documents.
For the final 11 days of the campaign, under new laws that went into effect Aug. 28, candidates have to report all contributions of more than $250 on a daily basis.
