Today, at the Missouri Ethics Commission:
C111221 03/28/2014 COMMITTEE TO ELECT DEAN DOHRMAN STATE REPRESENTATIVE Citizens for Hoskins PO Box 118 Warrensburg MO 64093 3/28/2014 $5,001.00
No Democrats filed in the 54th Legislative District against incumbent Representative (and Speaker Pro Tem) Denny Hoskins (r). Representative Dean Dohrman (r), legislative yes man and freshman representive, who narrowly won the 51st Legislative District seat in an open race with Gary Grigsby (D) in 2012 is facing a rematch in 2014. The 51st and 54th are neighboring districts.
The end result? Denny Hoskins (r) is free to prop up Dean Dohrman’s (r) campaign coffers since Representative Hoskins won’t have to spend any appreciable amount of money on his reelection effort.
