At the Missouri Ethics Commission:

[….]
On November 8, 2016, Missouri voters approved Constitutional Amendment 2 which, among its provisions, imposes campaign contribution limits on certain candidates for state office including statewide offices, legislative offices and judicial offices.
[….]
… the effective date is December 8, 2016…
[….]
Section 23, subsection 3(1), provides a contribution limit of $2,600 from any person, other than the candidate, to elect individuals to state office for “one” election.
