JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Democrat Jason Kander reports beginning the year with more than $442,000 in his campaign account for his run for Missouri secretary of state.
Kander, a Missouri House member from Kansas City, is the only Democrat actively campaigning for secretary of state. Two-term Democratic incumbent Robin Carnahan is not seeking a third term.
Kander released a summary Friday of his campaign finance report for the final three months of 2011. The summary shows he raised more than $230,000 and spent about $29,000 from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31.
Candidates for statewide office have until Tuesday to submit fourth-quarter fundraising reports to the Missouri Ethics Commission.
On the Republican side, state senators Bill Stouffer and Scott Rupp and House member Shane Schoeller are also running for secretary of state.
