$1 million for Greitens, but more than $600K from out-of-state sources
Greitens' financial disclosure report, filed Friday with the Missouri Ethics Commission, showed $1,015,988,85 in contributions, with $654,380 coming from outside of Missouri's borders.
Greitens' contributors included bankers, hedge fund owners and venture capitalists, as well as a few notable names.
Chicago Cubs owner Marlene Ricketts contributed $25,000. Ricketts is the wife of T. D. Ameritrade owner Joe Ricketts.
Linda McMahon, head of McMahon ventures (and wife of WWE front man Vince McMahon) contributed $10,000.
One of the larger contributors was Michigan Republican Party chairman Ronald Weiser, who gave $50,000. Weiser was ambassador to Slovakia during the George W. Bush Administration and was one of the primary architects of Michigan right-to-work legislation.
