KANSAS CITY, Mo. — With under three weeks left before the upcoming November election, Thursday marked the deadline for candidates to submit their final campaign finance reports.
41 Action News wanted to take a look at how candidates in some big local races did in regards to how much they received, spent and how much they still have available.
Kansas U.S. Senate Race:
The race to fill the U.S. Senate seat in Kansas that's coming open due to the retirement of Republican Sen. Pat Roberts has become one of the most-watched senate races across the country.
One reason? The financial performance of Democrat Barbara Bollier.
According to their third quarter filings, Bollier holds a significant cash advantage over Republican Rep. Roger Marshal.
During the quarter, Bollier reported raising $12.8 million compared to the $2.7 million raised by Marshall.
As the pair enter the final weeks of the campaign, Bollier has $7.5 million in cash on hand, while Marshall has $1.7 million.
Missouri Governor Race:
In the area's other closely-watched race, Republican Missouri Gov. Mike Parson is maintaining his fund-raising advantage over Democratic challenger, State Auditor Nicole Galloway.
In the third quarter, Parson reported raising $1.08 million to Galloway's $1.51 million.
In the stretch run of the campaign, Parson's campaign says they have $1.67 million in cash on hand, just slightly more than Galloway's $1.58 million.
Davids raised $1.4 million compared to Adkins $850,172 during the quarter.
Heading into the November election, Davids has about $1.8 million in the bank compared to Adkins' $429,691.
According to reports, De La Isla took in $742,561 compared to LaTurner's $572,214.
She heads into the final weeks of the race with $945,526 on hand, while LaTurner has $485,170.
Editors note: A previous version of the story incorrectly stated Governor Parson had raised $5.7 million in the third quarter and Auditor Galloway had raised $2.3 million in the third quarter. It also said Parson had $1.6 million cash on hand.
