CORRECTION

The gubernatorial campaign of Democratic State Auditor Nicole Galloway and the campaigns of the Republican and Democratic candidates for attorney general have raised more money in total than reported in this story as it was originally published.

The totals of those three campaigns' receipts reported in the story should have reflected money received since the Aug. 4 primary election for the Nov. 3 general election, but incorrectly assumed the totals reflected both elections combined.

As of reports filed Oct. 26:

- Galloway's gubernatorial campaign had raised $3,210,628.31 since the primary. This also means Galloway's campaign — combining both the primary and general election contributions received — has raised more than Republican Gov. Mike Parson's campaign for a full term as governor. The opposite was incorrectly reported. As of Oct. 26, Parson's campaign had raised $5,676,484.50 from primary and general election contributions. Galloway's campaign had received a combined total of $7,754,438.46.

- Republican Attorney General Eric Schmitt's campaign for election to a full term as attorney general had raised $551,936.41 since the primary. Combined with primary election contributions, Schmitt's campaign had raised $1,621,993.71.

- Democratic attorney general candidate Rich Finneran's campaign had raised $265,209.13 since the primary. Combined with primary election contributions, Finneran's campaign had raised a $631,659.76.
