Jay Nixon, the Democratic candidate for governor of Missouri, is looking more and more like the frontrunner. From the Kansas City Star :

With incumbent Gov. Matt Blunt not seeking re-election, Democrat Jay Nixon has emerged as the new fundraising leader in the race for Missouri governor.

After months of dominance by Blunt, Nixon reported raising $1.5 million during the year's first three months to easily outdistance his two chief Republican rivals, state Treasurer Sarah Steelman and 9th District U.S. Rep. Kenny Hulshof.

Nixon's take raised his cash-on-hand total to $2.7 million.

...

Nixon called his first-quarter take the biggest election-year haul in state history.
