And a look back at Senate 2…
From the 30 Day Report, Bob Onder, the winning candidate in Senate 2, far outspent his two opponents. Onder spent $438,739, about what his two opponents spent combined. Rep. Chuck Gatschenberger spent $258,124, ultimately not using $150K of his $200K loan to himself. Vicki Schneider spent $170,103.
Schneider repaid $222,279 of her loan. And also paid herself $52,720 for “bills.” I’m sure she incurred plenty of bills. However to not itemize them seems like an ethics violation to me.
Onder still has debt of $200,000 with $56,103 cash on-hand. He can raise money now and pay off his loan.
And for those eyeing the rumor that Jim Lembke will be joining the Onder senate staff, his Liberty Ink was paid $13,000 by Onder for campaign consulting…
Better Together Health Report
Better Together is the civic project looking at regional restructuring in the St. Louis area. The tragedy in Ferguson and subsequent media focus on the seeming injustices and incompetences within the smaller municipalities of St. Louis County, the work has taken on a fresh urgency.
While Better Together is still a mostly wonky affair, the real world implications of St. Louis fractured governance are becoming undeniable.
Libla in Las Vegas
Who knew that Sen. Doug Libla was a Vegas kind of guy?
No word on what sort of a poker player he is, but apparently he owns a home in the Sin City, and recently invited pack of his Jeff City friends to play golf and hang with him. Making the westward journey – everyone booking and paying their own way, covering their own costs – were: lobbyists John Bardgett, Charles Skoda and Steve Tilley, TJ Berry, Steve Cookson, Robert Cornejo, and Don Gosen, Sen. Mike Parson, and Sens-elect Bob Onder and Dave Schatz.
Sounds like the set-up for a Hangover 4 script… now we know the story if Libla shows up to veto session with a face tattoo…
Sen. Jason Holsman packed the house of his fundraiser last night. The off-cycle senator had a hundred people, including about twenty lobbyists from Jeff City. Sighted: Sen. Scott Sifton working the room, though it’s unclear if he’s prepping for a 2016 AG bid, or a Nov 2014 Minority Leader race… Holsy’s likely haul was over $40K…
Tesla, Nevada and EcoDevo Auctions
New York Times reports on Nevada’s huge incentive package to lure Tesla to their state. Read it here. Pull Quote: After pitting five potential host states against one another in a quest for hundreds of millions of dollars in incentives, Tesla Motors said Thursday that it had struck a deal with Nevada for construction of its sprawling factory to build batteries for electric cars and the power grid. The vision drawn by Tesla’s chief executive, Elon Musk, is sweeping — to catalyze the entry of the electric car into the heart of the American automobile market and, in the process, provide as many as 6,500 manufacturing jobs. To secure the deal, Nevada paid dearly. The package of tax breaks, which requires approval of the State Legislature, totals about $1.25 billion over 20 years. In a news conference late Thursday, Gov. Brian Sandoval acknowledged that there were concerns over the deal’s cost, but said that the agreement would “change Nevada forever” and that he expected the enormous tax breaks to pay dividends down the road.
