Message type: mailer
Message tone: negative
About the message: This mailer from Republican House Majority Leader Nate Gentry attacking his Democratic opponent Natalie Figueroa echoes other GOP mailers in emphasizing the need to reinstate the death penalty. It also says she's supported by "extreme special interests," such as defense attorneys. But thus far, her largest contributions come from PACs operated by other Democratic lawmakers. The Committee on Individual Responsibility, a trial lawyers PAC, hadn't donated to her as of early October.
The messenger's money: On Sept. 1, Gentry paid Triumph Campaigns in Missouri nearly $64,000 for direct mail.
