Something of a lull there, at least in the area of campaign spending.

The first of two republican candidates (in alphabetical order), Kyle Bone, didn’t file a first quarter campaign finance report with the Missouri Ethics Commission. He did file his committee organization statement on March 22nd and an electronic filing waiver on April 8th.

The second of two republican candidates, Dan Johnson, filed his first quarter campaign finance report with the Missouri Ethics Commission on April 8th:

Republic Services from Phoenix, Arizona has an interest in this race? Ah, waste management. Maybe Byron DeLear (D) and Kile Bone (r) need to send them contribution envelopes.
