Carnahan Raised Record Funds

Washington, DC – Former Missouri Senator Jean Carnahan set a record by raising more than $12 million in this year's campaign.

That's almost four million dollars more than the race's winner, Republican Jim Talent. The figures are from new reports from the Federal Election Commission.


Another example that the winning candidate does not always win was in this fall's proposition A. The side that won in a tobacco tax proposition last month was outspent 40-1.

New reports from the state show supporters of the tax increase raised nearly $6 million; two opposing groups raised but $130,000.
