MISSION, KS — Dr. Barbara Bollier, former physician, state senator and candidate for U.S. Senate, has officially outraised the entirety of the Republican field for the second quarter in a row and has almost three times the cash on hand of the second-largest fundraiser, FEC reports show.
Dr. Bollier raised $3.7 million in the quarter — more than any candidate running for state, local or federal office in Kansas history — and has $4.4 million cash on hand. Beyond her clear fundraising advantage, most recent public polling has shown Dr. Bollier leading or statistically tied with every single candidate running in the Republican primary.
“We’re at an enormous advantage going into a general election against any of the Republican candidates, none of whom cracked half a million dollars in fundraising for the quarter,” said Alexandra De Luca, Dr. Bollier’s communications director. “While the Republicans have all but depleted their resources on messy personal attacks, Barbara has built a campaign the likes of which Kansas has never seen — one that’s focused on spreading her message across the state. It’s clear voters are looking for a voice of reason who will focus on expanding access to affordable health care, strengthening our public schools, and standing up for our state in Washington. With our strong candidate, powerful bipartisan message, and evident enthusiasm across Kansas, we’re ready for November. The Republicans simply are not.”
