Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., who reported raising $914,000 during the second quarter and having more than $2.3 million on hand for his 2016 re-election bid, was among a number of politicians who used two concerts in Washington, D.C., by Taylor Swift to generate more campaign cash. “That is significantly different than my normal life,” Moran told Roll Call before the July 13 concert. “But it is very popular with ... fathers and their children.” According to the Sunlight Foundation, Moran was offering tickets to the sold-out concert for $750 and $2,000 each. – Rhonda Holman
