Candidates for Missouri offices must file finance reports Monday

JEFFERSON CITY — Missourians will get a fresh look at how candidates are faring financially as the 2012 election season ramps up.

Candidates for state offices face a 5 p.m. Monday deadline to file quarterly finance reports with the Missouri Ethics Commission. Those reports list how much money a candidate has raised and spent from January through the end of March. They also detail how much money a candidate still has in the bank.

While some candidates have been raising money for months, others might not have too much to report yet. That's because the deadline to file for office was March 27 — just four days before the close of the financial reporting period.
