Kurt Schaefer’s 2016 Attorney General campaign filed its third quarter campaign finance report with the Missouri Ethics Commission on October 15th:

Comparatively that’s not a huge fundraising quarter, but then with the amount of cash on hand it didn’t have to be.

The third quarter contributions:

Nothing says “establishment” like corporations, PACs, and other republican politicians.

What’s this? A modest contribution [pdf, pg. 5] from someone:

Rex Sinquefield

Westphalia MO 65085

$250.00

[emphasis added]

How historically uncharacteristic. It was a temporary anomaly.

Most of the money raised this quarter came from individuals and entities in Missouri:
