Records show that Democrat candidates for St. Louis County Executive have raised substantially more funds than Republican candidate. However, it is believed that most of those funds will be used in a fight between Democrats, Steve Stenger and Charley Dooley. According to the Post-Dispatch:
Financial reports filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission for the first quarter of 2014 show Stenger, a county councilman, with $794,000 cash on hand.
The balance in the Dooley war chest stands at $607,000.
