(Cape Girardeau) – Candidates running for the 8th Congressional District seat have released their fundraising figures for this quarter.

Jason Smith, a Republican from Salem who is serving as Speaker Pro Tem in the Missouri House of Representatives, has raised $308,000 since he was nominated February 9 by a congressional committee, according to a news release from his campaign headquarters.

Democrat State Rep. Steve Hodges of East Prairie, raised a total of $121,000 in the last 20 days of March.

A special election to fill the seat will be June 4. The seat was vacated in January when Jo Ann Emerson, Missouri’s longest-serving member of Congress, resigned to serve as CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
