Stay Red Kansas reports that sources have told them Jim Ryun will report raising $275,000 with $250,000 cash on hand.
I don't doubt the cash on hand number because that number's been tossed around a lot. Not sure how the other numbers would add up though.
If Ryun had $115,000 left over after paying all the bills last year, he would have only banked $135,000. That means he either spent $140,000 OR if the $275,000 includes a $115,000 transfer, then he only spent $25,000. The first number ($140K) seems high, the second number ($25K) seems low (and would mean he only actually raised $160,000, a solid, but not jaw dropping, figure).
If indeed the numbers are public, I'll let you know as soon as I see them.
[Update: Red State is reporting the numbers are $275K raised, $255K on hand. We still don't know if the $275K includes a $115K transfer. Sounds like a press release went out, so we'll probably read about it in the morning papers.]
[Update: A reader made an interesting point in an e-mail to me. They pointed out that Ryun didn't start raising money till after Kansas Days. So, whether he raised $160,000 or $275,000, it was just in two months. That makes it more impressive.]
