Spending for a Texas County judge’s race totaled nearly $40,000, according to campaign finance reports filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission.
Records show that Doug Gaston of Houston spent about $25,000 in his bid to win a four-year term for associate circuit judge. His rival, Brad Eidson of Houston, spent about $14,000, according to the reports.
Gaston defeated Eidson in the Republican Primary. He faces no opposition in the General Election in November.
