In addition to the fun of Tax Day, today is the day that Federal Election Commission reports and Missouri Ethics Commission reports are due for fund raising. With this being the first quarter of the new campaign cycle, this will be watched closely.
For the U.S. Senate seat in Missouri Robin Carnahan has announced her first quarter numbers, as has Roy Blunt. Carnahan raised just over $1 million, while Blunt raised $542,000. In the Illinois Senate race Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias released his numbers a few days ago, with his total at over $1 million.
In Missouri State Senate races, former Rep. Sam Page (running for Senate district 24) and Rep. Bob Dixon (running for Senate district 30) have released their numbers.
