On the second day of his campaign for Governor, Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich continued swinging at well-financed Republican primary opponent Catherine Hanaway.

“I'm very concerned about one billionaire in St. Louis who seems to be intent on not only buying the governor's mansion, funding over 70 percent of the campaign of my primary opponent, but also trying to buy certain legislators," said Schweich.

It's the second jab Schweich has taken at Rex Sinquefield since announcing his candidacy yesterday. He says a vote for Hanaway is a vote for Sinquefield. But Hanaway, who announced her own candidacy almost a year ago, criticized Schweich for setting up a Republican primary, which have hurt the party’s chances in the general election in previous years.
