Campaign finance reports: Koster has $7 million in bank

Candidates for governor filed their financial disclosure reports with the Missouri Ethics Commission Friday and the big money was in Attorney General Chris Koster's campaign account.

Koster, the only Democrat in the race to succeed term-limited Jay Nixon, collected $2,169,808 during the past three months and has $7,446,359.80, nearly as much as the four major Republican candidates combined.

Topping the cash game for the GOP was former Navy SEAL Eric Greitens with $1,015,988.85 during the quarter. Greitens has $4,130,296.79 in his account.

Businessman John Brunner raised $158,057.54 and has $3,235.814.60, while Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder picked up $328,295.53 and has $624,521.52.

Former Speaker of the House Catherine Hanaway, who hasn't picked up a big check from retired billionaire Rex Sinquefield in quite some time, raised $254,251 and has $1,581,464.54 in her campaign account.
