Missouri's most generous political donor is hosting an election night fundraiser for Republican Senator Roy Blunt in St. Louis.

Blunt isn't up for re-election until 2016. But St. Louis Public Radio reports that financier Rex Sinquefield and his wife Jeanne are hosting an early-evening event on Nov. 4 for the incumbent at their Central West End home.

Tickets start at $1,000 and go as high as $10,400 a couple. The reception is scheduled to end when polls close at 7 p.m.

Sinquefield recently donated $750,000 to Republican Catherine Hanaway's 2016 gubernatorial campaign, $250,000 to the 2016 attorney general's campaign of Republican state Senator Kurt Schaefer and $250,0000 to Republican State Senator Eric Schmitt, who is running for state treasurer in two years.
