Huckabee To Raise Funds For Huelskamp

KSCB News - July 15, 2009 12:00 am

Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee

plans to visit Kansas next week to help a Republican congressional

candidate raise money.

State Sen. Sen. Tim Huelskamp, of Fowler, is one of a half-dozen

candidates seeking the GOP nomination next year in the 1st

Congressional District.

Huelskamp’s campaign says a private reception with Huckabee – a

former Arkansas governor – is scheduled the evening of July 22 at

the Kansas Cosmosphere in Hutchinson. A dinner will follow, with

tickets priced at $100 to $2,000.

The heavily Republican 1st Congressional District includes much

of western Kansas. Incumbent Rep. Jerry Moran is forgoing a

re-election bid next year to run for U.S. Senate.

Huckabee won the Kansas Republican presidential caucuses in

February 2008 but lost the GOP nomination to Arizona Sen. John

McCain.
