Guthrie Campaign Going Like Gangbusters

Republican Congressional candidate Brett Guthrie has raised $600,000 -- three times more than his Democratic opponent, according to Guthrie's campaign. Guthrie is the Republican nominee for Kentucky's 2nd Congressional District.

Guthrie's opponent, David Boswell, said that he spent $200,000 -- all of his campaign's money -- in the Democratic primary.

Guthrie appears to be using the funds raised to recruit a top-flight campaign staff. His TV/radio advertising person, Brad Todd, has produced ads for Mitt Romney, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Michael Steele (who ran for the U.S. Senate in Maryland and is coming to Louisville to campaign for Anne Northup). Guthrie's pollster, Jan van Lohuizen, has conducted polling for Mitch McConnell since 1984 and knows Kentucky well.
