HAYHURST CAMPAIGN TAPPING DOCTORS

Details

WASHINGTON – Fort Wayne's medical community forms the backbone of Tom Hayhurst's donor list, with doctors, dentists, their spouses and employees contributing $12,900 of the $40,980 he raised in the past three months.

Hayhurst, a retired physician and City Council member, hopes to be the Democrat who runs against Rep. Mark Souder, R-3rd, in the fall. Hayhurst slowed in his four-quarter fund-raising compared with the amount he raised in the summer, when he posted $63,893.
