Who’s in the money? Ron Paul

Blank checkKansans have already invested $1.4 million in presidential campaigns since this race got off to its early start, according to finance documents filed Feb. 1. Even though Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kansas, dropped out, he still has the most Sunflower State campaign cash. But Texas Congressman Ron Paul, a long-shot Republican candidate who will be in Wichita Friday evening, has quietly raised almost $134,000. About $45,000 of that came from the Wichita area. That’s more than Democratic Sen. Barack Obama, who sits in third place statewide with $131,000. (Get a breakdown of all the candidates here. And get a list of Kansas’ biggest donors here.)

Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee both plan visits to Kansas before Saturday’s caucuses. Read more about that here.
