Kelsey, Pompeo differ in campaign fund-raising in 4th District

The two Republicans running for the 4th District congressional seat have about the same amount of money to spend, but came by it in different ways.

Republican national committeeman Mike Pompeo has raised about $253,000 since early April, primarily in large contributions from executives and their spouses.

State Sen. Dick Kelsey, R-Goddard, is largely self-funding his campaign so far, having lent his war chest $222,500 since announcing his candidacy in February.

In their quarterly reports, Pompeo reported cash on hand of about $233,000; Kelsey has $205,000.
