TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Republicans Tim Huelskamp and Lynn Jenkins have filed for re-election to Congress even though the lines of their districts aren't settled.

Each U.S. House member's campaign paid a $1,760 fee and filed paperwork Monday in the Kansas secretary of state's office to guarantee the incumbent's spot on the Aug. 7 primary election ballot.

Huelskamp represents the 1st District of western and central Kansas and is seeking his second term. Jenkins is seeking a third term in the 2nd District of eastern Kansas.

But the lines of their districts are unsettled because the Legislature failed this year to adjust the state's political boundaries to account for shifts in population. The job has been left to three federal judges handing a federal lawsuit over redistricting.
