Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder received a quarter of a million more in contributions than his likely opponent in 2012, Gov. Jay Nixon, according to documents posted today on the Missouri Ethics Commission website.
Kinder raised $478,211, while Nixon reported $253,622.49.
Nixon spent $139,450, leaving him with $1,097,341.95.
