Previously, from Bill Stouffer (r) in an article in the Warrensburg Daily-Star Journal:

“…I’m going to stay focused on our mutual opponent, which is Ike Skelton, and his out-of-touch, liberal voting record…”

And we wrote yesterday:

…It’s really something to watch republican primary opponents scramble for the most extreme spot on the fringe right with all the decorum of one of those mad dashes in a Marx Brothers movie…

We thought we’d take a look at campaign finance reports via the Federal Election Commission.

STOUFFER, BILL
