TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Chamber of Commerce has spent more than $231,000 this month on mailers and broadcast advertising designed to help conservative candidates in GOP state Senate primaries.

The chamber's political action committee disclosed the spending in a campaign finance report filed this week with the secretary of state's office. A dozen moderate Republican senators face conservative challengers in the Aug. 7 primary.

The biggest donor to the chamber's efforts remains Wichita-based Koch Industries Inc., which contributed $125,000 to the PAC earlier this month. That's more than half of the $228,000 the PAC raised since the beginning of the year.

The chamber reported spending $130,000 on radio and cable television advertising to influence state Senate races and more than $101,000 on printing and postage for mailers.
