State Sen. John Lamping, R-Frontenac, has yet to say if he’s running for re-election this fall, in what could be the region’s top legislative contest.
But his campaign money could be speaking for him. He has very little.
Meanwhile, his Democratic challenger — state Rep. Jill Schupp of Creve — has raised a lot.
The latest campaign-finance reports for the two, filed this week, show that Schupp raised more than $108,000 during the past three months. She now has $261,202 in the bank.
