Davis Outraises Brownback In 2014 Campaign Donations

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Paul Davis has raised more in contributions this year than Republican Governor Sam Brownback, but Brownback is entering the fall campaign with more cash on hand.

Finance reports filed Monday show Davis raised more than $1.1 million dollars in cash contributions from January through July 24th.

Brownback’s total was about $744,000.

Governor Brownback's campaign also received a $500,000 loan on July 23 from Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer. He made a similar loan in December, only to see it paid back within days in early January.

The Davis campaign reported nearly $566,000 for the period and had $1.32 million in cash left. Brownback spent about $370,000 on his campaign and ended with $2.37 million dollars in cash.
