Drury Development Corporation, St. Louis, reported spending $10,000 to oppose Rep. Bill White's bid for 32nd District State Senate, according to a 24-hour report filed Friday with the Missouri Ethics Commission.
The buy officially came from the Missouri Republican Leadership PAC, which took a $10,000 contnribution from Drury Development and spent it on last minute digital media attack ads.
Added to the $105,700 spent by the Missouri Senate Conservatives Fund, so far $115,700 have been spent by forces opposing White.
According to Missouri laws, political action committees that spend money opposing or supporting candidates are not allowed to coordinate with the candidates' opposition. White is opposed by former Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce President Rob O'Brian in the Republican primary.
