Ah, Fall is in the air. The leaves are falling, the temperature is (supposed to be) dropping, and the quarterly campaign finance reports are in at the Missouri Ethics Commission.

David Pearce (r-plastic smile and party rubber stamp), current representative in the 121st House District, is a declared candidate for the senate seat in the 31st District (currently held by Chris Koster and previously held for 28 years by Harold Caskey).

Well, David Pearce’s third quarter report, filed on 10/15/07, shows that Pearce 08 raised $35,408.29 ($29,960.00 cash, $3000.00 in a loan, and $2,448.29 in kind) with a cash on hand balance of $50,190.40.

Pearce’s expenditures included $2,500 to the McKellar Group in Kansas City for “fundraising” and $369.00 for postage.

Now comes the fun part – contributions (look at all those PACs!):

Then again, $50,000 is not particularly stellar fundraising for an open senate seat.

For a minute there I was getting worried that the bankers had run out of money. It certainly looks like David Pearce has organized labor really locked in.

So far there is no declared Democratic candidate for the seat.
