Tiahrt brings in $450K

Senate candidate Todd Tiahrt announced today he raised $450,987 in the second quarter, bringing his cash on hand total to $1,283,000.

From the release:

As of June 30th, Tiahrt had $1,283,000 cash-on-hand to Moran’s $2,239,000. Once general election money is factored in, Moran’s lead shrinks even further to $800,000 ($1,092,000 for Tiahrt versus $1,900,000 for Moran).

General election contributions cannot be spent on the primary election and are held in escrow until after a candidate wins the primary. If a candidate doesn’t win the primary; general election contributions must be returned to donors.

“Our record-breaking fundraising numbers are reflective of the momentum we see across the state as more Kansans are throwing their support behind Todd Tiahrt who has never voted for a tax increase and has the backing of Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express,” said Michelle Schroeder, Tiahrt for Senate Communications Director. “The Tiahrt campaign has caught fire with former Moran supporters joining Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express supporting Todd Tiahrt in the Senate race. We are seeing Congressman Moran’s campaign flounder and begin to fall apart in these final weeks – which is what we’ve always projected given Congressman Moran’s 12 votes to raise our taxes and his dishonesty about his vote to give amnesty to illegal immigrants.”

  1. So basically, Moran is still slaughtering Tiahrt in fundraising, despite Tiahrt’s continued mud-slinging and meaningless endorsements.
    I guess Kansans are still pretty smart and can see past Tiahrt’s twisted campaign tactics. Tiahrt needs to give us a little credit and get back to talking about the issues.

  2. How is talking about Moran’s votes against parental notification and for tax increases NOT talking about the issues? Just wondering…

  3. I’m just saying it seems like Tiahrt can’t talk without talking about Moran. Tiahrt must really look up to Moran to base all of his talking points on him. Like a little kid idolizing the high school team’s star quarterback.
    My case in point, the very first part of the press release above starts like this:
    “One day following the announcement that illegal immigration opponent Tom Tancredo withdrew his endorsement of Congressman Jerry Moran (R-Hays) and endorsed Congressman Todd Tiahrt (R-Goddard), Tiahrt announced that his campaign raised a record $450,987 in the second quarter of 2010. Tiahrt ended the quarter with $1,282,934 cash-on-hand, cutting the cash-on-hand primary lead to $800,000.”
    Like the meaningless Tancredo endorsement has anything to do with funds raised. Whatever.
    Try to make your own way Tiahrt. Don’t base your whole campaign on what Moran does or doesn’t do. Geez. Kinda pitiful.
