Moran Re-Election Campaign Has More Than $2.3M

Sen. Jerry Moran’s re-election campaign says the campaign has more than $2.3 million in cash on hand for the 2016 general election.

The Wichita Eagle reports Moran, a Hays Republican, took in more than $914,000 during the second quarter of 2015. Moran started the year with about $1.4 million in the bank.

Moran who won the seat previously held by Gov. Sam Brownback in 2010, has also served previously in the U.S. House and Kansas Legislature.

He is building up campaign funds for 2016 to defend his seat, although so far there is no announced Democratic opposition to Moran in the 2016 general election.
