Brody: You’re gonna need a bigger boat.

Today, at the Missouri Ethics Commission, the republican senate campaign committee had a really good day:

It always seems so easy for Missouri republicans. The money thing. They end up having all they need.

Missouri Democrats urge investment in legislative races at Jefferson-Jackson Dinner

Casting their Republican counterparts as ineffectual extremists, some of Missouri’s top Democratic officials provided a blueprint of sorts at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner to gain even more ground in the Show Me State.

And Attorney General Chris Koster, a former Republican, pledged to put up a substantial amount of campaign money to help the cause….

….And on Saturday, he [Attorney General Chris Koster] pledged to give $400,000 over the next four years to help Democrats in the Missouri legislature.

“While our party’s individual statewide victories are significant, they cannot be enough without a legislature to support us,” Koster said. “Our individual victories cannot improve the education of a single child or land a single cargo plane at Lambert Field or bring health care to a single unemployed auto worker. Individual success is just that – it’s individual.”

“They say that politics is a team sport,” he added. “This much I know. Public policy success requires team success. And team success requires team play….”

Yep, he’s gonna need to raise a lot more money.
