JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Top Missouri Democrats are continuing to pump money into state campaigns as the Nov. 4 election approaches.

Campaign finance records show U.S. Sen Claire McCaskill donated $50,000 to the Missouri Democratic State Committee last Friday, bringing her total contributions to $590,000.

McCaskill donated $10,000 to state Senate candidate Jill Schupp on Saturday. It’s the first time she’s contributed to an individual candidate this year.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster also donated $50,000 to the Missouri Democratic State Committee last Friday, bringing his total this year to $150,000.

The donations are intended to help Democrats pick up seats in the Missouri Legislature, where Republicans hold a two-thirds majority in both chambers.

The two-thirds mark is necessary to override vetoes by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.
