   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Republican Catherine Hanaway says she raised more than $300,000 in the first couple of months after announcing her candidacy for Missouri governor in 2016.
   Hanaway's campaign released a summary Thursday of her fundraising figures for the period ending March 31. Quarterly finance reports are due to be filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission next Tuesday.
   Hanaway announced her gubernatorial candidacy Feb. 8. She says she raised nearly $308,000 by the end of March and had nearly $302,000 on hand after expenses.
   Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon cannot seek re-election because of term limits.
   Hanaway was the first Republican to declare her candidacy to succeed Nixon, though State Auditor Tom Schweich also is interested in the governor's race.
   Democratic Attorney General Chris Koster also is preparing to run for governor.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A lawsuit challenging Illinois' caps on political donations is unlikely to be resolved before the 2014 elections.
 
That means limits put in place after Gov. Rod Blagojevich's impeachment will probably remain in place for the rest of this election season.
 
The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers reports that a federal judge this week dismissed most of the challenges brought by the Liberty Justice Center.
 
The judge kept one element of it alive for debate, but an attorney for the Chicago-based group says it will take months to play out.
 
As a result, attorney Jacob Huebert says it's unlikely it will be settled by November.
 
The group argues the donation limits in the 2009 law are unconstitutional because contributions from legislative leaders are not capped in general elections.

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former St. Louis City alderwoman has been fined $100,000 for using her campaign funds to pay off student loans and for spa visits.
   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Kacie Starr Triplett misused almost $19,000 in campaign donations on personal expenses.
   In a letter Thursday, Triplett apologized for her actions and said her decision stemmed from "greed and selfishness," not from need.
   The Missouri Ethics Commission levied the six-figure fine but is willing take only $10,000 if Triplett pays within 45 days. There is no criminal penalty in the commission's decision, although it could spur other investigations.
   Triplett left the Board of Alderman in 2012.

Debate over future of embattled state lawmaker

The future of a troubled state lawmaker is unclear. Democratic Missouri State Representative Steve Webb was charged yesterday for theft and campaign finance violations.

Prosecutors say that Webb solicited donations for an event in Washington DC, instead, he deposited that money in a personal account. Shortly after the charges, the AP reported that House Minority leader Jake Hummel said Webb told his office he planned to resign. Later Wednesday, Webb told reporters he had no plans to step down. 

Thursday, Hummel released a statement saying standing by his previous comments, that Webb told him he planned to resign. Hummel continues that for the sake of his family and constituents, Webb should resign. Webb represents portions of North St. Louis County, including Florissant.
