Galloway, the lone Democrat holding a statewide office, brought in $117,259 for the July cycle. Parson, on the other hand, raked in nearly $120,000. Both also spent similar amounts this cycle: Galloway spent a little more than $45,000 whereas Parson spent about $42,000.
Still, Galloway significantly trails Parson when it comes to cash on hand; Galloway reported nearly $133,000 to Parson’s $1.15 million.
Meanwhile, Parson’s Uniting Missouri PAC reported more than $2.8 million cash on hand with nearly $649,000 coming in this quarter.
Of the other statewide elected officials, Attorney General Eric Schmitt has the most cash on hand with about $511,026. Following is Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft with nearly $254,000; Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe with nearly $221,000; and State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick with nearly $176,000.
Elad Gross, the Democrat challenging Schmitt for attorney general, reported more than $25,600 cash on hand.
Additionally, state Sen. Scott Sifton — who recently declined a gubernatorial bid after months of speculation — reported nearly $317,000 cash on hand in the July quarterly filings. Sifton has endorsed Galloway for governor and is still expected to launch a campaign for statewide office.
Sifton’s PAC, Show Me Leadership, reported having more than $8,800 cash on hand in the latest filings. It brought in more than $7,200 just this quarter.
Former Gov. Eric Greitens reported more than $704,000 cash on hand in the July filings. He brought in just over $1,000 this cycle but spent more than $113,000. His total indebtedness for this cycle was nearly $102,000.
Greitens campaign committee spent more than $79,600 in legal fees this quarter. He also appeared to spend some change on out of state travel with less than $35 going toward tolls and convenience store purchases in New Jersey in June.
The campaign also has a new treasurer, Jack Neyens.
