Another $278,000 from St. Louis mega donor Rex Sinquefield has made its way into the campaign coffers of Republican gubernatorial hopeful Catherine Hanaway, bringing his total investment in her campaign to nearly $1.6 million.
The latest donation didn’t come directly from Sinquefield.
Instead, it came from Great St. Louis, a political action committee formed in late April that got a $2.8 million check from Sinquefield last month. So far, that’s the only funding reported for Great St. Louis.
When Hanaway filed her most recent quarterly campaign disclosure report in April, she had raised roughly $2.7 million during the entire campaign and had $1.5 million cash on hand.
Hanaway is one of four Republicans running for the party’s nomination for governor.
