OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — The leading Democratic candidate for the Senate in Kansas raised twice as much money in contributions during the last three months of 2019 as the top four Republicans combined, campaign finance reports showed Friday.
But state Sen. Barbara Bollier’s nearly $1.1 million in contributions couldn’t overcome Republican Rep. Roger Marshall’s advantage in cash at year’s end because of funds the western Kansas congressman carried over from his House campaign account.
Marshall ended 2019 with $1.9 million, despite collecting less than $218,000 in contributions during the previous quarter. Bollier, a retired Kansas City-area anesthesiologist, ended the year with about $810,000 in cash.
