TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ At least two-thirds of the Legislature's incumbents are seeking re-election.

Twenty-one of 40 senators and 91 of 125 House members had filed as of Tuesday, according to the secretary of state's office. The filing deadline is June 10.

The last senator to file was Tim Huelskamp, a Fowler Republican. The last House members to file were Lance Kinzer, an Olathe Republican, and Joshua Svaty, an Ellsworth Democrat.

Among those saying they won't seek re-election is long-time Lansing representative, Republican Kenny Wilk.
