Beginning of Period: $489,211.81
After a brusing primary, Jenkins has to refill her coffers to even stay in the race, and she certainly did that. But let's break that down a little more:
Itemized Contributions: $215,348
Unitemized Contributions: $19,310
PAC Contributions: $169,652.85
"Other" Committees: $227,274.91
A quarter of the money Jenkins raised was from PACs, and another 33% came from "other" political committees- we'll look closer at those later. 30% of Jenkins money came from big donors- and only 3% came from small Kansas donors. Each of these numbers certainly says something about where Jenkins' support really comes from.
More on this report, and Boyda's numbers, later tonight.
