Fundraising - KS-01

Amazingly the money in the Big First is still fairly close. Huelskamp leads in amount raised and cash on hand but this early - anything can happen. Barnett has also previously run statewide so may have a leg up on the name ID. Huelskamp and Barnett also represent state senate districts within the first - Wasinger and Mann are relatively new candidates on the scene. We'll keep our eyes out for a poll in the race - but from the looks of it, anyone could walk away from the crowded primary a winner.

Wasinger $202,800 COH $100,800 Raised
Huelskamp $480,000 COH $136,800 Raised
Barnett $374,700 COH $126,600 Raised
Mann $240,800 COH $72,000 Raised

Barnett did give himself $100,000 of his money this summer but we're pretty sure that will still be accepted to run ads...

Kansas Senate Poll

A new poll finds Rep. Jerry Moran leading Rep. Todd Tiahrt 40-33% in the race for the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Sam Brownback. Compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll released 2 months ago, Moran is up 3 points. Tiahrt is down 1.

27% were still undecided - still a sizeable chunk this early out. Tiahrt recently went up on TV - we'll see if that can help him star swaying some of the undecideds his way. The only analysis we can make at this point is that this is going to get heated, quickly!
