Overland Park, KS- Newly filed reports with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show that in the fourth quarter of 2017, Yoder for Congress received twice as many donations as the entire field combined. It marks the second straight quarter Yoder for Congress received more contributions than the entire field of challengers combined, and strong sign of momentum.
As announced earlier in the month, Yoder for Congress broke the record for the most contributions to a House candidate's campaign at this point in an election cycle in Kansas history. In total, the campaign raised more than $500,000 in the fourth quarter of 2017, bringing its cash on hand to more than $1.75 million.
The entire field of Democrats raised less than $250,000 combined in the fourth quarter.
"Democrats are panicking today," CJ Grover, Yoder for Congress spokesperson, said. "They're probably confounded as to why Kansans aren't responding positively to the party that calls $3,000 bonuses, minimum wage increases, and new benefits packages 'crumbs.' But it should come as no surprise to anyone who knows the Third District that Kevin's positive message and hard work will continue to receive strong support."
The paltry fundraising reports were filed by the Democrat challengers on the same day that a Monmouth poll was released showing the Democratic lead in the generic House ballot has collapsed from 15 percent to 2 percent nationally over the last month since the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
