Missouri Governor Jay Nixon's campaign has raised almost triple that of Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder.
Wrap: Numbers released show that Nixon's campaign raised over 4 million dollars, while Kinder's campaign raised less than 2 million.
Nixon's campaign treasurer Craig Hosmer says Nixon received more donations because he earned the support of the people while in office ... not because of recent reports that Kinder was once a patron at a strip club.
Kinder's campaign advisor Rich Chrismer would not directly comment on whether Kinder's relation to a strip club affected donations.
But he says the campaign has the resources to be successful.
|Description: "To put this in perspective, Peter Kinder has more cash on hand than the last Republican challenger had at this time in 2003."|
Kinder is expected to announce his candidacy in the next month.
