Welcome to a place where ideas are looked at from a fresh perspective. There is a large focus on politics, mostly from a Progressive Perspective, often tempered with the Constitution, and trying to avoid the extremes of the right and the left. My hope is to avoid the echo chambers.

HOW DID LYNN JENKINS MANAGE TO SPEND $7,011 MORE THAN STEPHENE MOORE?
The Center for Responsive Politics is reporting that Lynn Jenkins raised $1,371,315 in this year's race for Congress. Jenkins is reported to have spent $847,838. On what did she spend all that money? I live in Kansas' Second Congressional District and I can't see where it went.
Meanwhile Jenkins' Democratic opponent Cheryl Hudspeth raised all of $12,075 and spent $11,756.
Over in the Third Congressional District Stephene Ann Moore has been locked in a real battle with Kevin W. Yoder. Yoder raised $1,677,029 and spent $1,465,910 compared to Moore raising $851,044 and spending $840,377.
I can see where Mrs. Moore spent her money. She has gone toe to toe with Mr. Yoder in a mega media battle. In the waning days of this year's race Ms. Jenkins began to sprinkle a few television ads here and there. In no way, shape, manner, or form has she penetrated the media markets in a fashion similar to Stephene Moore. Yet she outspent Moore by $7,011.
Am I looking forward to the full accounting? You betcha!
