WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A political action committee that has spent more than $260,000 on ads criticizing Kansas congressman Tim Huelskamp says all the money is coming from concerned Kansas farmers.
Now or Never spokesman Tyler Harber said in an emailed statement Friday that no Washington lobbyists or special interest groups have been involved in its efforts in the state’s 1st Congressional District.
The Republican congressman faces a primary challenge Tuesday from Clyde farmer Alan LaPolice.
Huelskamp said Friday he has written to the U.S. House clerk requesting an investigation of the PAC. He wants it prosecuted for using the House seal on a flier criticizing him for being removed from the House Agriculture Committee.
The PAC says Huelskamp’s complaint shows his disconnection from Kansas voters and the needs of his constituents.
