Steve Stenger, the Democratic candidate for St. Louis County executive, is entering the final weeks of the contest with more than twice the money in the bank as Republican rival Rick Stream.

In reports filed Wednesday, Stenger reported that he had raised $447,244 since the Aug. 5 primary and had $400,902 in the bank.  That compares to only $173,081 raised by Stream, who reported $155,068 on hand.

Stenger also has outspent Stream: $322,562 compared to Stream’s $246,512.

Stenger has accumulated a campaign debt of $317,937 – most of it owed to himself. Stream reported no debts.

Overall, Stenger has raised $2.6 million, most of it spent in his primary race against County Executive Charlie Dooley.  Stream has raised $173,081 for this campaign, but that he already had $228,500 in his campaign bank account.
