The third quarter 2009 campaign finance reports were due today at the Missouri Ethics Commission. In the 121st Legislative District race Democratic challenger Courtney Cole outraised incumbent Denny Hoskins (r – noun, verb, CPA). It could have been worse for Denny Hoskins. If he hadn’t had $5000 of help from his CPA friends it wouldn’t have even been close.

Let’s take a look at the numbers for Courtney Cole filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission today:
