SHAWNEE, Kan. — Olathe businessman and entrepreneur Greg Orman, the Independent candidate running for U.S. Senate, today announced his campaign filed a report with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) showing he raised nearly $600,000 from individual contributors since entering the race in late May.
Mr. Orman took in $597,163 in individual contributions from a broad cross section of registered Republicans, Democrats and Independents across Kansas.
“This is a remarkable fundraising effort for an Independent candidate in such a short period of time. Greg’s message of fixing the mess in Washington through common-sense problem solving is clearly resonating with voters,” said Jim Jonas, Orman’s campaign director. “Raising significant campaign resources is a critical proof point of Greg’s rising viability and stature in this race for the U.S. Senate.”
Orman’s fundraising total does not include contributions from Political Action Committees, as his campaign is not accepting them, or any cash contributions from the candidate. Mr. Orman reported more than $550,000 cash on hand at the close of the reporting period ending June 30.
Last week Orman unveiled a statewide advertising campaign that’s now airing commercials on broadcast, cable and radio outlets in every Kansas media market. His campaign continues to collect signatures of registered voters as part of the petition drive to qualify him for the general election ballot in November.
