TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Some Republican incumbents for House and Senate seats are dismayed that the anti-abortion organization Kansans for Life has not endorsed them, despite their records on the abortion issue.

The Topeka Capital Journal (http://bit.ly/Lmr8zn ) reports Tuesday that redistricting for House and Senate districts that placed two or more incumbents in the same district has complicated the endorsement process.

That's the case for Republican Rep. Trent LeDoux of Holton and Rep. Richard Carlson of St. Marys, who are competing for the 61st District in northeast Kansas.

Kansans for Life endorsed Carlson over LeDoux and Daniel Brenner, also of Holton. LeDoux says he's been a stauch supporter on anti-abortion issues.

Kansans for Life officials say they endorsed Carlson because he had seven years of voting in support of their issues.
