Kline trounces Howe in fundraising

kline logo.jpg
Many here have helped Phill Kline financially in his primary race against Steve Howe for Johnson County, KS, District Attorney. The election is one week from today!
Kline, of course, is the stalwart trying against all odds to enforce KS’s late-term and underage abortion laws.
There is still time to financially help.
Meanwhile, some have been asking for a fundraising update. Financial reports were just submitted, and here’s the status today from the Associated Press

Johnson County District Attorney Phill Kline raised about $83,000 in six weeks for his Republican primary campaign.
He took in slightly more than his opponent, Steve Howe, did in a year.
The figures were in reports filed by their campaigns with the secretary of state.
Kline is running for a full, four-year term, having been appointed by fellow Republicans appointed him to fill a vacancy, starting in January 2007. He started raising money two days after making the June 10 deadline to file to run.
Kline’s report showed he and his wife contributed $1,000. Then he raised an additional $82,160.
Howe, a former assistant district attorney, began raising money in June 2007. His total since then is $81,784, including $50 he kicked in.

I understand online contributions helped signficantly.
Want to restress: More funds are needed. THANKS.

    Have fun with that says:

    Yep, he raised 80K+, and spent over 20K on just getting started with his campaign (including rent, supplies, reimbursements, etc.), leaving him with approximately 60K cash on hand. Funnily enough, that’s almost exactly what Howe has on hand without having to disburse any start up costs! Yay, victory for Kline!
    Oh, and Guinn has twice as much money as both of them. I love seeing the R’s tear into each other prior to facing a better prepared Dem.

    Yeah, like the entire GOP is rallying around McCain. That is laughable. 62 million evangelicals might disagree with you…

    Charles, that is exactly the opposite of what happens in this situation in my home state of KS.
