Page reports $202,028 in bank for state Senate bid
This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon, Oct. 14, 2009 - Former state Rep. Sam Page -- one of several Democrats competing for the 24th District state Senate seat -- has filed his latest report showing him with $202,028.09 in the bank.
More than a year before the election (and 10 months before next summer's Democratic primary), the bank account figure will be the most important number on the candidate campaign-finance reports due Thursday with the Missouri Ethics Commission.
Page's report shows that he has raised $350,523.89, spent $144,770.80 -- and no debt.
The other Democrats vying the seat to be vacated (due to term limits) by state Sen. Joan Bray, D-University City, include St. Louis County Councilwoman Barbara Fraser and state Rep. Michael Corcoran.
