Steelman Self-Funding up to $800,000 Before Primary

Missouri Senate candidate Sarah Steelman dipped into her personal wealth again in the final days before the GOP primary. Her 48 hour report filed on July 31 reflects a $100,000 contribution to the campaign on July 30 -- bringing her self-funding total to $800,000.

Steelman first loaned her campaign $400,000 last year. And now she has contributed an additional $400,000 since July 20, in $100,000 increments: $100,000 on July 20, $100,000 on July 24, $100,000 on July 27, and the July 30 contribution.

Her contributions still don't put her anywhere near the self-funding league of her primary opponent John Brunner: The businessman has spent close to $7 million on his campaign.

But Steelman's fundraising has lagged throughout her campaign, hence the needed boosts to cross the finish line for the August 8 primary.
