Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins Shatters Second District Fundraising Records

Topeka – 2013 proved to be another record breaking fundraising year for Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins, as she announced raising over $1.1 million in the past year alone. This total is the most ever raised by a candidate for the Kansas Second Congressional District in a non-election year.

“These numbers show that while Kansans remain deeply frustrated with Washington, D.C., they can clearly distinguish between those who are working to rebuild the American Dream and those who are supporting a misguided agenda of greater government intervention in our private lives." said Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins. “I am committed to getting Washington out of the way so our economy can grow, and more Americans can get back to work and take home more of their paychecks. These resources give me a real advantage to hold the President and those who blindly support his agenda accountable for their record broken promises.”

Congresswoman Jenkins will also report over $1.6 million cash on hand. $1.6 million is the largest cash on hand total ever in Kansas's Second District, outpacing her previous record set last fall and shattering the most ever held by prior candidates or office holders by more than $700,000.
