Jenkins leading Second District fundraising efforts

July 16, 2010


— Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins has a huge financial advantage over her challenger in the Republican primary in the state's 2nd Congressional District.

The Topeka resident is seeking her second term representing the eastern Kansas district. Her campaign reported raising almost $161,000 from April through June.

That's eight times as much as her rival, state Sen. Dennis Pyle of Hiawatha. He reported raising about $19,000 during the quarter.

In her re-election campaign, Jenkins' fundraising approached $1.1 million by the end of June. Pyle's total for his campaign is $79,000.

But the congresswoman's campaign spent only about $82,000 during the last quarter. Pyle's total was about $39,000.

I think I hate Lynn Jenkins more than I have ever hated any other politician.

There are thousands of places money could be well spent right now, the pockets of this #$%* is not one of them.

Uniku: Don't stop with Brownback and Jenkins; I'd include: Kobach, Tiahrt, Klein, Abrams and Ryun! But I agree, she is terrible!

Seems we have a very liberal group here... I think Jenkins is actually too moderate, she sometimes blows with the Kansas wind. We need a rock solid conservative to represent us in Washington Dennis Pyle will do nicely, I'll vote for him in the primary if he doesn't make it I'll vote for Lynn she really has done a pretty good job fighting the liberal agenda offered by Obama and his ilk...
