According to the latest polls conducted by KSN News, Jennifer Winn is polling higher against Governor Sam Brownback than Todd Tiahrt is polling against United States Representative Mike Pompeo, and higher than Dr. Milton Wolf is polling against United States Senator Pat Roberts.
Both Tiahrt, a former United States Representative who previously held Pompeo’s current seat, and Wolf, are well-financed, while Winn has no financial backing to speak of. At last check, Winn had roughly $1,500 in campaign funding, while Brownback has close to $4 million. And yet, the latest poll has Brownback leading with only 55% of the vote, and Winn holding 37%.
To put this into perspective, Tiahrt currently has 34% of the vote in his race against Pompeo, a race that is considered a “hotly contested race”.
Dr. Wolf, a newcomer to the political realm, has contracted a campaign consultant who was previously employed by Senator Ted Cruz. Wolf is polling at 23% of the vote against incumbent United States Senator Pat Roberts.
Brownback won his last Primary race with 88% of the vote. Jennifer Winn is a contender in this race, just as much as (actually more than) Tiahrt is a contender against Pompeo, or Wolf is a contender against Roberts, whether the media wants to admit it or not…
