Koster leads fundraising for Missouri governor with $3M

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Finance reports show Democratic Attorney General Chris Koster has more than $3 million on hand to spend for his campaign for Missouri governor in 2016.

Records filed Wednesday show that’s more than twice the amount of former House Speaker and U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway, the front-runner among a number of Republican candidates declared or debating a run.

Hanaway had roughly $1.2 million on hand as of March 31.

Koster is the only Democrat running. That gives him an advantage over Republicans, who must vie for donations among GOP supporters.

Hanaway’s fundraising between January and April also slowed after she stopped campaigning following the death of her Republican gubernatorial opponent, Auditor Tom Schweich.

Navy SEAL Eric Greitens, another Republican exploring entering the race, trails Hanaway with about $450,000 on hand.
