​Kansas 1st District Challenger Outraises Incumbent Huelskamp

Great Bend obstetrician Roger Marshall is challenging incumbent U.S. Representative Tim Huelskamp in the Republican primary for the Kansas 1st Congressional District

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A central Kansas obstetrician who is seeking to unseat Republican U.S. Representative Tim Huelskamp outraised the incumbent last quarter and is closing the fundraising gap between the two. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Roger Marshall of Great Bend raised nearly $185,000 in the period between April and the end of June, with most of that coming from individual contributors. Huelskamp raised nearly $77,000 during the same period, with nearly half coming from political action committees. Fort Hays University political science professor Chapman Rackaway says he's impressed with Marshall's showing for the quarter, but added that Huelskamp's fundraising hasn't ramped up yet. Alan LaPolice, a second Republican challenger seeking Huelskamp's seat, filed a finance report Tuesday that indicated he didn't raise any money during the quarter.
