dc.description.abstract[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] In this thesis, I analyze the geographic origins of state legislative campaign contributions. Previous studies have addressed the origins of campaign contributions at the national level finding that congressional contributions come from primarily wealthy, individual donors who are not necessarily constituents of the recipient candidate. This study will apply the idea of "monetary surrogacy," or the pattern of individual campaign contributions at the congressional level, to state legislative races in Missouri. The findings from this study demonstrate that the "monetary surrogacy" pattern of individual campaign contributions do not appear to exist at the state legislative level. At the state level, the proportion of state legislative candidates from metropolitan areas is directly proportional to the amount of total individual contributions provided by the area. Further, at the state level committees contribute more money overall to legislative candidates than do individuals. Thus, committee contributions rather than individual contributions should be the center of study in state legislative campaigns.eng
