Republican Governors Association pumps $1.1 million into Spence campaign
For once, Dave Spence is not the biggest contributor to his campaign for governor.
Documents filed today with the Missouri Ethics Commission show the Republican Governors Association contributed $1.1 million to the Spence campaign, a surprising outpouring for a race that does not appear to have ever taken off.
The Spence campaign launched an ad yesterday attempting to link his opponent, Gov. Jay Nixon, with President Obama.
