Brownback Raising Cash To Pay Campaign Debt

Associated Press - July 14, 2015 12:06 pm

A Kansas lawmaker says the economic development incentive tool that could finance a proposed outdoor activity center at a Lawrence lake will be examined during the upcoming legislative session.

Records show that the campaign finance team for Gov. Sam Brownback’s re-election has been working to pay off legal fees and debt from the 2014 election.

Brownback and his campaign-finance team have been reaching out to potential donors since he was re-elected last November when he defeated Democratic nominee Paul Davis.

Brownback campaign’s most recent finance report filed in January shows the campaign carried $300,000 in residual loan debt. The report also shows the campaign organization owed $200,000 to Brownback and $100,000 to Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer.

Brownback spokeswoman Eileen Hawley confirms the campaign is raising funds that will be used to repay existing loans and legal fees from the re-election campaign. But Hawley would not address how much the campaign still owes.
