Davis Raises $1M For Gov. Race

Democrat Paul Davis raised a little more than $1 million in cash contributions in less than five months for his campaign to unseat Republican incumbent Sam Brownback in the Kansas governor's race.

Davis' campaign also reported Wednesday that it ended 2013 with almost $771,000 in his campaign treasury. Davis is the Kansas House minority leader and launched his campaign in early August.

His campaign described the fundraising as unprecedented for a challenger.

Davis' campaign filed a finance report a day after close Brownback ally David Kensinger confirmed that the governor raised more than $1.6 million in cash last year for his re-election and ended 2013 with nearly $2 million in campaign funds.

Kensinger said no gubernatorial challenger has overcome such a large early deficit in campaign cash.
