Hughes contributes $2,100 to own campaign
Cassville Republican faces Reavis, Daniels in Tuesday's public administrator primary
A recently-filed campaign finance report shows that Barry County public administrator candidate Rodney Hughes, R-Cassville, contributed $2,100 to his own campaign and spent about $1,500 in the second quarter.
Hughes gave $100 to his campaign on April 4, $1,000 on April 18, $500 on May 20, and $500 on May 23.
His biggest expenditure was $659.45 to SuperCheap Signs of Austin, Texas. He purchased $428 in advertising from The Monett Times, spent $196.74 at Sports World in Cassville for t-shirts, spent $136.14 with Litho Printers of Cassville for pamphlets and cards, and purchased $121 in advertising from the Shell Knob-based Rattler newspaper.
No financial information was available for Hughes' opponents -- Andy Reavis, R-Cassville, and Keith Daniels, R-Exeter. Reports are not required for candidates who spend less than $1,000.
No Democrat declared for public administrator as of the filing deadline, making Tuesday's Republican primary the de facto general election, barring a late entry by an independent candidate.
