Lager Campaign Chest

Missouri's GOP lieutenant governor candidate from northwest Missouri is showing strong financial support in his bid for the seat.

Republican Brad Lager of Savannah reports 4th quarter fundraising totaling more than $733,000. Add to that more than 800,000 in cash on hand for the campaign and it adds up to more than a million and a half dollars. Lager announced his candidacy for Missouri's second spot in November, and is running on a platform of job creation, smaller government, and fiscal restraint. The state senator is running against the incumbent lieutenant governor and a former Democratic municipal judge. Two candidates on the Democratic side are campaigning, including former St. Joseph resident and chair of the party Susan Montee.
