Greitens outpaces all gubernatorial rivals with latest fundraising tally



Republican Eric Greitens, author and former Navy SEAL, continues to outraise his rivals for governor in both parties, according to his latest campaign report.

Greitens’ latest report, filed Friday, shows that he has raised $1.5 million since Oct. 1, putting him slightly ahead of the $1.4 million reported by Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster, a Democrat and the longstanding fiscal frontrunner in the crowded race to succeed outgoing Gov. Jay Nixon.

However, Koster remains the leader when it comes to money in the bank. His latest campaign report shows $5.8 million in his account, significantly larger than Greitens’ $3.4 million.

Greitens’ campaign noted that his bank account has $3 million more than the possible frontrunner in the four-way GOP contest for governor: Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder. Excluding Greitens’ sizable out-of-state donations, his campaign says he raised close to $604,000 in Missouri during the quarter.
