Peter Kinder isn’t attracting tons of donations
Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder hasn’t yet officially announced that he’s running for governor, and his latest campaign fundraising report might be a message that the Cape Girardeau Republican isn’t ready to replace Jay Nixon.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Kinder raised $410,000 in the last quarter, less than one-third of the $1.46 million that Nixon took in. Nixon now has $4.2 million on hand, while Kinder has $1.5 million squirreled away.
