Tiahrt has big bucks on his side
“Rep. Todd Tiahrt’s nearly $1 million in campaign cas1 will make him difficult for state Sen. Donald Betts, D-Wichita, to beat next year. But so will the millions in “earmark” dollars Tiahrt expertly delivers to his state, in part because of his seat on the House Appropriations Committee.

And according to Taxpayers for Common Sense, Tiahrt has 48 projects worth $56 million (including $44.5 million for defense) earmarked in spending bills this year, far more than Sens. Sam Brownback ($48 million) and Pat Roberts ($27 million) and Reps. Nancy Boyda ($26 million), Dennis Moore ($8 million) and Jerry Moran ($6 million).”Posted by Rhonda Holman
