Jenkins Holds Big Lead in Fundraising in KS Race


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republican congresswoman Lynn Jenkins has maintained her big fundraising lead over Democratic challenger Margie Wakefield in the 2nd District of eastern Kansas. Finance reports filed last week by their campaigns show Jenkins ended June with nearly $2 million in cash on hand for her campaign. Wakefield had less than $236,000. Jenkins also raised almost three times as much in cash contributions from April through June, $382,000 compared with $135,000 for Wakefield. The biggest advantage for Jenkins was with political action committees. She raised nearly $255,000 from PACs, compared with less than $20,000 for Wakefield. Jenkins is seeking her fourth two-year term. Wakefield is a Lawrence attorney. Jenkins faces Joshua Joel Tucker of Pittsburg in the August 5 GOP primary, but he raised only about $6,800 during the last quarter.
