We wrote it yesterday:

You’re gonna get whiplash if you’re watching the contributions come in over the last week of the campaign finance reporting quarter…

Yep.

Yesterday, at the Missouri Ethics Commission:

C000525 06/24/2011 UAW REGION 5 PAC Jay Nixon for Missouri PO Box 11418 St Louis MO 63105 6/24/2011 $100,000.00

[emphasis added]

That’s Jay Nixon for Missouri to the UAW Region 5 PAC. At least it went to political advocates for working people. It’s interesting, Jay Nixon’s (D) campaign has enough on hand to make a contribution like that. You don’t see republican campaigns doing that, do you?

And the republican probably sort of candidate for governor keeps raking in the cash. You’d think if the republican establishment was so disappointed in his candidacy the money spigot would dry up. It hasn’t at this point:
