Republican congressman Mike Pompeo has built the biggest stockpile of campaign cash of any Kansan seeking re-election to Congress next year.
Pompeo’s campaign reported this week that it ended September with $2 million in cash after collecting $656,000 in contributions during the previous three months. Pompeo represents the 4th District of south-central Kansas.
In the 3rd District of the Kansas City area, incumbent Republican Kevin Yoder collected net contributions of about $285,000 during the previous three months. Yoder ended September with almost $1.78 million in cash.
Republican congressman Tim Huelskamp of the 1st District of western and central Kansas ended September with about $716,000 in cash on hand. He raised about $92,000 during the third quarter.
No reports were available online Wednesday for Yoder’s and Huelskamp’s Democratic challengers.
