Judy Baker has raised 1.3 million to Blaine Luetkemeyers 596K (Luetkemeyer has amassed 1.7 million when self-funding is counted), but Luetkemeyer has had a much faster burn rate with his barrage of negative ads. Luetkemeyer just dropped in another 200K to fund his campaign this weekend and has now self-funded 1.12 million.

Republican Blaine Luetkemeyer has dipped $200,000 deeper into his own wallet - increasing to $1.12 million the total in personal funds he’s kicked into his fight to win Missouri’s 9th District Congressional seat.

Luetkemeyer on Saturday donated $200,000 to his campaign according to a report filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission. That’s in addition to $920,000 in personal loans he made previously for the overall primary-general election cycle.

Luetkemeyer has used his own money to remain competitive on the TV and radio ad front with Democratic foe Judy Baker, who has raised far more money than the Republican from contributors.

Please donate to Judy Baker here to give her the chance to respond to Blaine Luetkemeyer's latest negative ad buy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
