Obama Raises More than McCain in Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ The Lawrence Journal-World reported today that Obama has raised $1.3 million from Kansas contributors, compared with $1.2 million raised by Republican candidate John McCain.

Statewide, more than 100 towns contributed more to Obama than
McCain, the paper reported after analyzing numbers released last
week by the Federal Elections Commission.

It's a surprising disparity as the reliably Republican-leaning
state hasn't elected a Democratic president since 1964.

Political experts chalk up the difference to a combination of
Obama's sophisticated use of technology and his ability to energize
the party's base, as well as McCain's strategy to target his
resources in parts of the country where he's less sure of receiving
votes.
