Kansas Democratic Party contributes $90K to Davis

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A finance report shows that the Kansas Democratic Party contributed $90,000 in the past week to gubernatorial nominee Paul Davis’ campaign against Republican Gov. Sam Brownback.

The report filed Thursday also showed that Davis raised an additional $85,400 in contributions from individuals, businesses and political action committees after Oct. 23.

His total fundraising of $175,400 for the period far surpassed the $65,250 reported by Brownback’s campaign.

But Brownback began Oct. 24 with more than $1 million in his campaign account, thanks to a $500,000 loan from his running mate, Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, and another $200,000 loan from the governor and his wife.

Davis’ report showed that the state Democratic Party contributed $50,000 to his campaign Monday, then an additional $40,000 two days later.

The election is Tuesday.
