TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s campaign continued raising money after he took office last year and collected more than $247,000 in cash contributions.
The campaign filed a report Tuesday with the secretary of state’s office, disclosing information about its activities in 2011.
It began the year with more than $408,000 left over from Brownback’s successful 2010 run for governor. The campaign fund ended the year with about $439,000 in cash on hand.
During the year, the campaign spent more than $216,000, including nearly $60,000 on consulting services. The campaign also made a $14,000 donation to the Kansas Republican Party and paid $19,200 to a Washington company for computer software.
The governor also has a political action committee, the Road Map PAC, but it neither raised nor spent money last year.
