TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Companies operating state-owned casinos in Kansas have contributed $70,000 to a political action committee backing moderate Republican state senators in contested primaries.
The Senate Republican Leadership Committee disclosed the contributions in a campaign finance report filed this week with the secretary of state's office. The PAC is led by Senate President Steve Morris, a moderate Hugoton Republican.
It shows contributions to the PAC from each of the companies operating the state's casinos in Dodge City, Kansas City and south of Wichita. The largest contribution, $50,000, came earlier this month from the company running the Wichita-area casino.
The Kansas Contractors Association's PAC contributed $20,000 to the PAC in January.
Another major contributor to Morris' PAC is the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce's PAC, which contributed $12,500 in June.
