The battle between doctors and lawyers continues in the 129th District state representative race.
The eight-day-befor-election report filed today by Bill White, shows he has received $6,090 in July, with at least $5,200 of that coming from doctors or doctors' spouses, according to Missouri Ethics Commission records.
The largest contributions, $2,000 apiece, came from Dr. Stephen Slawson and Michelle Slawson.
White's biggest expenditure was slightly over $31,000 to Phillips-Ward Associates, Joplin, for advertising. He spent $36,504.83 during the first part of July, and had $9,567.42 in the bank, according to the report.
While White's money has been almost exclusively from doctors, the contributions of his Republican primary opponent, Shelley Dreyer, have come almost entirely from lawyers, according to Ethics Commission documents.
