Fund-raising reports released Friday show Republican Congressman Jim Ryun is barely outpacing his challenger.
Reports to the Federal Election Commission covered fund raising
from mid-July through September.
Ryun's challenger is Democrat Nancy Boyda. She out-raised him for the reporting period, pulling in nearly $269,000 to Ryun's nearly $208,000.
But Ryun remained ahead of Boyda in overall money raised. He has
accumulated nearly $853,000 to her nearly $833,000.
Boyda's fund raising includes nearly $146,000 she has loaned her campaign.
Ryun also has the advantage of having started his re-election campaign with nearly a quarter-million dollars left over from his last campaign.
