The republican sign primary in the 21st Senate District:

Interestingly, there’s no indication of party affiliation. If there were they would have to be:

(left) “very conservative republican” and (right) “wingnut birther republican who has a thing for perpetual motion machines“.

The July quarterly reports are out at the Missouri Ethics Commission. First, for David Pearce (r):

REPORT SUMMARY

PEARCE FOR SENATE 7/15/2012

2. All Monetary Contributions Received This Period $65,220.00

10. Expenditures made by cash or check this period $17,201.54

27. Money On Hand at the close of this reporting period $194,420.31

[emphasis added]

That’s a healthy cash on hand, but there is also a well financed primary opponent with a base in the district. Money sitting around in the campaign account doesn’t do any good the day after you lose a primary.

Some of the contributions:

And Mike McGhee’s (r) July quarterly report?:

REPORT SUMMARY

MCGHEE FOR SENATE 7/16/2012

2. All Monetary Contributions Received This Period $43,765.00

13. Total All expenditures made this period $20,745.78

27. Money On Hand at the close of this reporting period $47,031.26

[emphasis added]

Remember, there’s been quite a bit of money from some of the usual suspects coming in to Mike McGhee’s (r) campaign coffers after the reporting period.

Let’s look at the contributions from the report:

CONTRIBUTIONS RECEIVED – SUPPLEMENTAL

MCGHEE FOR SENATE 7/16/2012

Missouri Club for Growth P.O. Box 2068 St Louis MO 63158 6/29/2012 $40,000.00

Salley’s Propane 1010 E. Highway Z Bates City MO 64011 6/29/2012 $500.00

D & T Carwash, LLC P.O. Box 325 Blue Springs MO 64013 6/30/2012 $500.00

[emphasis added]

Uh, yep. That’s one monster contribution.

A slick mail piece (at least in look, not so much in content) from Mike McGhee’s (r) campaign. And, there’s no indication of party affiliation.

Typical. Touting useless legislation (“right to pray”) and support from a big money astroturf (fake grassroots) organization. And, of course, the republican brand is missing on the mailing.

Some of Mike McGhee’s (r) campaign expenditures:

ITEMIZED EXPENDITURES OVER $100 SUPPLEMENTAL FORM

Orscheln Farm & Home 1661 N. Highway 13 Higginsville MO 64037 6/25/2012 T-Posts for signs $641.37

Signs!

Hmm. Nothing, as far as we can tell, about that slick mail piece yet.

Pass the popcorn.
