Republican district helps Huelskamp campaign bid

KSAL StaffAugust 10, 2014

U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp faces a stronger opponent November after surviving a revolt in the primary from farmers in his rural district.

But the incumbent has two advantages that are seemingly insurmountable for his Democratic opponent – a heavily Republican district and lots of campaign cash.

The 1st District congressman emerged from the primary with 55 percent of the vote in a tough race against an unknown political newcomer. He now faces former Manhattan Mayor Jim Sherow.

Huelskamp also had more than $806,000 in campaign cash in last month, compared to less than $5,000 for Sherow.

Plus, nearly 53 percent of voters in the district are Republicans, 27 percent are unaffiliated voters. Democrats account for 19 percent.
