Mailer Hits Mann

It seems 1st District candidate Jim Barnett isn’t practicing what he’s preaching. New radio ads from the Barnett campaign chastise Republican opponent Tim Huelskamp for using big money to degrade him and his campaign. But Barnett used the exact same methods he criticized Huelskamp for in a new mailer attacking Tracey Mann. The mailer is targeted at Mann supporters and any potential supporters, pointing out what they believe to be Mann’s shortcomings. 

For months Huelskamp and Barnett focused their attacks on one another but now both seem to be putting Mann in their target range. The mailer illustrates the growing concern the race’s long-time leaders – Huelskamp and Barnett- have with Mann, who was continued a second-tiered candidate until he jumped 16 points in the June Survey USA poll and earned another couple of percentage points in the latest poll conducted over the weekend.


About Katie Stockstill-Sawyer

I am a city girl that is learning about life on the farm. I met and married a fourth-generation farmer, Derek. I am now a farmer's wife and country girl. The move has required a few changes and a lot of learning. But I wouldn't change my new life and all of the little lessons and surprises it provides.


One thought on “Mailer Hits Mann

  1. Barnett – typical of a snake – I mean a politician – that’s been cornered. We have all seen and known of Huelskamps true character all along. He will do or say anything to win a vote. I also received Barnett’s poster board-sized mailer saying that Mann isn’t from western Kansas (Mann is born and raised in Quinter — Barnett from Emporia, which one is western Kansas? Weird.) I am frankly a little shocked by Barnett going so low, and down right lying.
