What of the War-Chest?
Greitens for Missouri showed $2,512,422 in the bank on their April campaign finance filing. There are three possible futures for these millions of dollars. First, the campaign could return the money to donors by some method (pro rata, or small contributors first, or last in, first out); Second, the balance could be donated to a cause which would generally please the Republican base (the Missouri GOP Party, or the campaign to beat back the RTW referendum); Third, it could be transitioned into an ongoing committee as was the war-chests of former speakers Tim Jones and Steve Tilley.
I am told that the third option is very unlikely. But we’ll see…
