Campaign finance reports show opponents of amendment two – the stem cell initiative – have raised more money between October 1st and the 26th than backers of it – $1.9-Million to $1.3-Million. But the total figures for the entire campaign show supporters have raised more than $30-Million, most of it from Jim and Virginia Stowers, who opened the Stowers for medical research in Kansas City. Opponents have raised about $3.6-Million in all. $600,000 of that amount is from the St. Louis Catholic Archdiocese, which says the money came from private donors, and $272,000 from a St. Louis woman.
