Kan. Senator Says He's Raised $5.2 Million

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Sen. Pat Roberts has raised more than $5.2
million for his re-election campaign.
The Republican is seeking his third term in the Senate against
Democrat Jim Slattery, a former congressman for the 2nd District of
eastern Kansas.
Roberts announced Friday that he raised almost $954,000 during
the third quarter of this year. He ended the quarter on Sept. 30
with $1.8 million on hand.
Before the third quarter, Roberts had enjoyed a 4-to-1 advantage
in campaign funds over Slattery.
Slattery spokeswoman Abbie Hodgson didn't immediately return a
telephone message.
