State Sen. Tim Huelskamp, of Fowler, reported having significantly more cash on hand at the end of June than other candidates in the Aug. 3 primary contest. His total was almost $392,000.
But Sen. Jim Barnett, of Emporia, reported raising the most money from April through June. His total was about $174,000.
Salina commercial real estate salesman Tracey Mann raised almost as much, nearly $173,000.
Former congressional aide Rob Wasinger, of Cottonwood Falls, raised about $161,000.
Huelskamp raised about $134,000 during the quarter, but he’s collected more contributions than the other candidates throughout the campaign.
