Rep. Lynn Jenkins’ health-care campaign contributions

In honor of her town hall meeting scheduled for 4 p.m. today at the Dole Institute on the University of Kansas campus in Lawrence, here’s a list of Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins‘ campaign contributions from the health-care industry. (We’ll refrain from saying anything here about other town hall meetings that got her in the news recently.)

In 2007-2008, running in her first-and-only U.S. House campaign, former Kansas Treasurer Jenkins raised $1,803,976. Of that, $33,129 came from medical-industry interests.

Jenkins’ total includes $6,129 in in-kind (other than cash) contributions from The Wish List (Women in the Senate and House), which describes itself as “America’s largest fund raising network for pro-choice Republican women candidates.” Because we counted money from pro-choice groups in Sen. Claire McCaskill’s contributions, we’re including The Wish List and the Republican Majority for Choice‘s contributions to Jenkins.

$8,500
American Society of Anesthesiologists

$6,129
The Wish List

$5,000
American Association of Orthodontists
Pfizer

$4,500
Republican Majority for Choice

$2,000
Kansas Medical Society

$1,000
American Academy of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery
American Association of Neurological Surgeons

Jenkins’ list is the latest in a series of health-care campaign contributions we’ve been adding up during the August recess. So far, we’ve counted how much industry money has gone to Sen. Pat Roberts ($525,000), Rep. Dennis Moore ($62,000), Sen. Claire McCaskill ($132,000) Rep. Sam Graves ($85,500) and Senators Kit Bond ($20,500) and Sam Brownback ($11,500).
