Contents: We're certainly glad to have that support and appreciate those contributions. They're going to be used in an important 2004 endeavor. I think people across the state are ready for change, that's why we've been successful in soliciting that sort of support in communities all across our state.

With 13 months left to collect contributions, Blunt has raised almost $2 million dollars. From the state Capitol, I'm Christine McCarty.
