Campaign finance reports filed Monday with the Harvey County clerk show at least one candidate scooping into their own pocket to help finance their campaign.

According to the reports, Bruce Jolliff, who is running for Harvey County sheriff, has donated more than $10,000 to his own campaign, listed on schedule B, “In-kind contributions.”

In contrast, his opponent on the ballot, Democrat T. Walton, reported $16 of in-kind contributions to the campaign.

Jolliff used in-kind contributions to pay for postcards, mailers, envelopes, postage and advertising items.

In-kind contributions are accounted for separately from campaign donations.

In the run-up to Tuesday’s election, contributors had given Jolliff more than $5,000, while the Walton campaign had been given more than $3,100.

Current Sheriff A.J. Wuthnow raised $1,050 for a write-in campaign.

Entering into the final week of the campaign, Walton has the most cash on hand — $1,871. Jolliff reported having $179 and Wuthnow $82.

Finance reports for the Kansas House and Senate races also were due Monday, though at the state level. Statements were not available at press time.
