….Yes, but the eventual republican nominee will have all the money they need….

Today at the Missouri Ethics Commission for Eric Greitens’ (r) 2016 gubernatorial campaign:

C151053 07/18/2016 GREITENS FOR MISSOURI SEALs for Truth P.O. Box 29525 Washington DC 20017 7/18/2016 $1,975,000.00

[emphasis added]

Nope, can’t (as far as we can tell) vote in the primary or the general election.

Still, $1,975,000.00 is a lot in anyone’s book. Gee, if only there was some available television air time somewhere in Missouri.

Yard signs! That’s one way to spend $1,975,000.00 in two weeks.

And where did all that money come from? (via the Federal Election Commission):

….Committee ID : C00619973 Name: SEALS FOR TRUTH
Address: P.O. BOX 29525, WASHINGTON, DC 20017
Treasurer Name: BRITT, NICHOLAS
Type: O – INDEPENDENT EXPENDITURE-ONLY COMMITTEE
Designation: U – UNAUTHORIZED

[emphasis added]

Well, it’s pretty darn new.

According to their FEC Form 3-X they didn’t have any assets as of June 30, 2016:

[….]

(c) Total Receipts (from line 19) 0.00 0.00

7. Total Disbursements 0.00 0.00

9. Debts and Obligations Owed TO the Committee 0.00

So, until we see the next filing we can’t tell who dropped $1,975,000.00 on Eric Greitens’ (r) gubernatorial campaign. So much for transparency.
