A lot of people are asking a lot of questions about the approximately $1.2-million sitting in the political committee that would have spearheaded Governor Matt Blunt’s re-election bid had he chosen to run for a second term.

The committee has the authority to redistribute the money as the committee sees fit, and Republican gubernatorial candidate Kenny Hulshof’s campaign is expected to receive a healthy chunk of that money. But Governor Blunt says some of that money will go to other candidates who embrace the ideals of those who contributed the money in the first place.

Legislation passed by the General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Blunt will eliminate campaign contribution limits for committees and individuals on August 28th.
