Brunner ads $1.2M to his Mo. Senate campaign
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- St. Louis businessman John Brunner says he poured an additional $1.2 million into his U.S. Senate campaign during the past three months.
Brunner is one of several Republican competing to challenge Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in the November election.
Quarterly finance summaries released Monday show Brunner now has contributed more than $2.2 million to his campaign -- much of which has gone to advertising. Brunner raised about $168,000 from other contributors this past quarter.
Republican Congressman Todd Akin reports quarterly receipts of $416,581, and former Republican state Treasurer Sarah Steelman reports raising $178,707.
After expenses, Akin had $1.4 million in his campaign account, Steelman had nearly $600,000 and Brunner had about $225,000.
McCaskill last week reported quarterly receipts of $2.3 million, and $6.1 million in her campaign account.
