Republican governors group puts $1.5M into Mo.

Dave Spence

Victory has resulted in some immediate financial support for Republican gubernatorial candidate Dave Spence.

The Republican Governors Association gave $1.5 million to its Missouri affiliate Wednesday — a day after Spence easily won a four-way Republican primary for the right to challenge Democratic Governor Jay Nixon. The Missouri political action committee can either pass the money on to Spence's campaign or spend it directly to support him or oppose Nixon. The national group also gave the Missouri affiliate $250,000 in late July.
