A candidate’s claim to have more Missouri donors sending him more money than any of his opponents has been challenged.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Eric Greitens has received more than half his campaign funding from out-of-state donors. That’s a source of criticism by some of his opponents in the race for the Republican nomination.
Greitens responded by saying he’s got more donors in Missouri and has raised more money from in Missouri than his opponents.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that’s not true, saying 34-percent of Greitens funds come from 112 in-state donations compared to 96-percent from 485 donations for Catherine Hanaway.
Greitens’ campaign hasn’t answered the report.
