Nixon has two million in campaign account

Gov. Jay Nixon has $2 million in his account for his re-election campaign, according to his second quarter disclosure report. The following news release was issued today:

In a strong show of early support, Gov. Jay Nixon’s campaign raised more than $1.6 million during the past finance period and has more than $2 million in the bank for the 2012 re-election effort.

“The early financial support is critical, but the real reason that Jay Nixon is in a strong position to be re-elected is the tough and effective leadership he’s shown as Governor during these challenging times,” said Oren Shur, Nixon’s campaign manager. “While Gov. Nixon continues to focus his attention on balancing the state budget without raising taxes and creating new jobs to turn this economy around, the campaign will aggressively prepare for 2012.”

The summary page of the finance report is attached and the full report will be available today on the Missouri Ethics Commission website.

Some additional facts about the previous finance period:

· Total amount raised in period: $1,674,481.19.
· Campaign’s cash-on-hand: $2,070,485.22.

 93% of contributors this period are from Missouri.

· Total contributors this period: 986
