Hanaway has $1.5 million for campaign for Missouri governor
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Former Missouri House Speaker and U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway says she has about $1.5 million to spend on a campaign for governor.
Hanaway on Monday said her campaign received about $360,000 in donations from 200 contributors during the past three months. She spent about $105,000.
That brings her up to roughly $1.5 million when combined with previous donations.
Hanaway was the only woman to have served as Missouri House speaker.
Hanaway faces a showdown with at least three other declared Republican candidates who also hope to be Missouri's next governor. Others are considering joining the race, and at least one has already started fundraising.
Attorney General Chris Koster is the only Democrat in the race.
Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon cannot seek re-election because of term limits.
