When it comes to raising campaign money, gubernatorial candidate Jay Nixon won the war, but opponent Kenny Hulshof won the battle in Columbia.
Despite being outpaced nearly 2-to-1 in statewide fundraising, Hulshof received 12 percent more in contributions from Columbia residents than the attorney general did.
Columbia residents and businesses donated more than $153,000 to Hulshof's campaign during the gubernatorial race, according to last week's Missouri Ethics Commission report. Hulshof raised more than $20,000 in the city during October alone.
Nixon ended up with a total of just more than $120,000 from Columbia residents.
The figures from Columbia differ dramatically from the statewide fundraising totals of both candidates.
Nixon reported raising $16 million over the course of his three-year campaign for the governor's seat, nearly double the $8.3 million Hulshof reported raising since launching his campaign in January.
