Four Republican incumbents seeking re-election to the U.S. House are reporting significant advantages as they campaign to keep their jobs representing Kansas.

Two of the incumbents, Reps. Tim Huelskamp of the 1st District and Kevin Yoder in the 3rd District, reported strong fund-raising figures to the Federal Election Commission for the period ending June 30. Huelskamp is unopposed in the Aug. 7 primary and November general election. Yoder has a Libertarian challenger only in November.

Rep. Lynn Jenkins raised $350,000 in her bid for a third term representing the 2nd District. Her three Democratic challengers raised about $52,000 combined.

Wichita Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo raised more than $138,000 for his campaign, more than five times that of his Democratic challengers. He is seeking a second term in the 4th District.
