Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Missouri next week for a tax event and will attend a fundraiser for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Josh Hawley.

Pence is scheduled to attend the tax event Thursday in downtown St. Louis. It was organized by America First Policies, a nonprofit that promotes President Donald Trump's agenda.

Missouri's Democratic U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill has spent about $3.5 million on her re-election campaign in recent months.

Finance reports provided to The Associated Press on Thursday by her campaign show she spent more money between April and June than her top Republican challenger was able to raise in that same time period.

Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill says she's raised more than $4 million for her re-election campaign in recent months.

Her campaign on Wednesday announced McCaskill raised more than $4.3 million from April through June. She has roughly $12.2 million in cash to spend. Her campaign didn't immediately provide how much she spent last quarter.

The national Republican party will begin spending money to support Josh Hawley in his race for the U.S. Senate even though 10 other GOP candidates are running for the nomination.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Missouri Republican Party this week gave the national organization permission to help fund Hawley's campaign before the Aug. 7 primary.
