The October Quarterly Campaign Finance reports were due at the Missouri Ethics Commission today. From Josh Hawley’s (r) 2016 campaign for Attorney General:

C151132: Hawley For Missouri
Committee Type: Candidate
Party Affiliation: Republican
Po Box 1073
Columbia Mo 65205
Established Date: 07/23/2015
Information Reported On: 2016 – October Quarterly Report
Beginning Money on Hand $1,152,678.76
Monetary Receipts + $3,271,840.81
Monetary Expenditures – $99,871.46
Contributions Made – $1,000.00
Other Disbursements – $0.00
Subtotal $3,170,969.35
Ending Money On Hand $4,323,648.11

[emphasis added]

The contributions to Josh Hawley’s campaign from July 1 August 28 to September 30, 2016:


$2,006,250.00 of the total came in four contributions (one of them in-kind for a relatively small amount) from a single entity. Determining before Election Day who wrote the check(s) to the PAC to accumulate this amount will probably be next to impossible.

Another $1,000,000.00 of the total came from two individuals associated with TAMKO.

Does it look like there’s an agenda in here somewhere? Just asking.

$172,501.00 came from nineteen individuals or entities who contributed in amounts between $5,000.00 and $25,000.00.

$101,214.81 came from individuals who contributed in amounts between $5.00 and $3,000.00.


As far as we can determine, approximately 77% of the money contributed to Josh Hawley’s campaign from July 1 to September 30, 2016 came from out-of-state addresses. That proportion has not changed for the better for the third quarter since last year.
