In the 3rd congressional district, which includes eastern Lawrence, U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore, a five-term incumbent Democrat, held a sizable lead in campaign funds over Nick Jordan, a Republican state senator from Shawnee who announced his candidacy in August.

Through Sept. 30, Moore had raised $581,664. Combined with funds from previous reporting periods, Moore reported a campaign war chest of $621,323.

"The overwhelming financial support for our campaign demonstrates confidence in the moderate, common-sense message I work to bring to Congress," Moore said.

Jordan raised $107,596 in six weeks and had $99,351 cash on hand Sept. 30.

"It's especially gratifying to have received so much financial support when the election is more than a year away," he said.
