Kansas: Pyle Challenges Jenkins in Republican Primary

Several months after he announced he was looking at challenging Rep. Lynn Jenkins in the Republican primary, state Sen. Dennis Pyle made his campaign official Tuesday.

“The people of Kansas and especially those in the second district deserve a true conservative as their congressman,” Pyle said in a statement.

Pyle has reported raising about $60,000 for his bid. Jenkins reported having $749,000 at the end of March.

Jenkins came to Congress last cycle after winning a primary against former Rep. Jim Ryun (R) and then defeating Rep. Nancy Boyda (D) in the general election.
