Adkins Raises Over $290,000 in Congressional Race
Overland Park, Kan. – Kansas City businesswoman and 3rd Congressional District candidate Amanda Adkins, who launched her campaign September 9th, will report $290,000 raised in her first FEC report.
“I’m encouraged by the campaign support I’ve earned from Kansans,” said Adkins. “As the only businesswoman with extensive healthcare experience and a mother, I’m dedicated to fighting Washington’s dysfunction and delivering results for Kansas families.”
Adkins will file her first fundraising report to the Federal Election Commission on October 15, 2019 with totals in excess of $290,000. Since launching her campaign only three weeks ago, Adkins has met with, spoken to, and gained the support of hundreds of supporters throughout the district.
Adkins is Vice President for Strategic Growth at Cerner Corporation, the area’s largest employer and a global leader in healthcare innovation. She is the former chairwoman of the Kansas Republican Party, where she achieved unprecedented election success while serving two terms from 2009-2013. In 2010, she delivered a “clean sweep” for the Republican party, electing Republicans in every statewide and federal office across Kansas.
Adkins graduated from the University of Kansas in 1998 and has lived in Overland Park for the past 17 years. She and her husband, Jason, have been married 20 years and have two children, Madison and Dylan.
