And the republican?:

Cadre of local businesspeople help Spence raise money fast

By Jo Mannies, Beacon political reporter

A handful of area businessmen have helped one of their own, Republican gubernatorial hopeful Dave Spence, outpace Gov. Jay Nixon in big donations for the first part of this month….

….Spence’s early large donations came from seven area businessmen, two of whom — Bill Koman and Robert O’Brien — gave $100,000 apiece.

In addition, Spence donated $2 million of his own money to his campaign.

With exceptions of O’Brien and Koman, Spence’s donors have not been major campaign contributors to other candidates….

Any guesses on who’s the favorite of the 1%?
