Steelman raises $200K for U.S. Senate bid

U.S. Senate hopeful Sarah Steelman has raised $200,000 for her campaign, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

According to the paper, Steelman raised the sum in about a month.

So where does that put Steelman among her fellow U.S. Senate candidates? The Post-Dispatch lists the candidates' fundraising progress as follows:

  • Incumbent Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill: $905,000 (but she has had four years to raise this amount)
  • Fellow Republican Ed Martin: approx. $40,000 (even though the most recent report lists a sum of $175,514, this is probably incorrect and attributed by the paper to a computer error).
