From The Hill Newspaper, Jim Ryun is already off to a bang for his 4th Quarter fundraising efforts, and those efforts don't officially begin for 11 days.
"Former Reps. Jeb Bradley (N.H.), Melissa Hart (Pa.) and Jim Ryun (Kan.) join three challengers to perennial GOP targets and three challengers taking on freshman Democrats in the first batch of top-tier candidates to get fundraising help from the Republican Conference."
"The event, which is set for Oct. 24 at the Capitol Hill Club, has raised between $75,000 and $100,000 per candidate in the past and is expected to raise a similar amount this time."
As we've said before, this is a mixed bag for Ryun as he will be accused by the Jenkins and Boyda camp of being too cozy with DC. But, Ryun will walk away with 75,000 to 100,000 reasons not to care about those accusations.
Ryun is also referred to as a "top tier" candidate in the article, which will likely make the Jenkins camp upset as well. While the flyer for the event did carry a disclaimer that the NRCC was taking no position in the primary, it seems as though Ryun's former colleagues think highly enough of him to want him back.
Also of note, Nick Jordan will be a beneficiary of this fundraising effort. A clear sign the Republicans believe he represents our best shot at picking off do-nothing Dennis in the 3rd CD. I think it's outstanding that Moore has joined Boyda as a Top 10 target.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
