Kansans Prefer Pompeo
Pompeo raises 10 times more money from 10 times as many individual contributions from Kansas donors than Tiahrt
WICHITA—This week, Pompeo for Congress and Kansans for Tiahrt each submitted their required quarterly fundraising report to the Federal Elections Commission. This is the final quarterly report before the August 5th primary.
As evidenced in the reports, the Pompeo campaign raised $685,453 from 445 contributions from Kansas donors itemized during this cycle. In contrast, the Tiahrt campaign report shows that Mr. Tiahrt raised only $63,450 from a mere 43 contributions from Kansas donors itemized during this cycle.
“Mike is humbled by the overwhelming support he has received from voters across the 4th Congressional District,” said Jim Richardson, campaign manager for Pompeo for Congress. “We appreciate that so many Kansans are investing their hard-earned money in Mike’s campaign for re-election. It is now clear that Kansans are rejecting Mr. Tiahrt’s desperate attempt to get back to Washington, D.C.”
