TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Republican Governors Association is running a new TV ad in Kansas attacking Gov. Sam Brownback's Democratic challenger in November's election.

The 30-second spot portrays Paul Davis as a liberal tied to President Barack Obama. The ad does not mention Brownback, but the message dovetails with one of the Republican incumbent's key campaign themes.

Davis spokesman Chris Pumpelly said Thursday that the ad on Topeka and Wichita stations is designed to distract voters from Brownback's record on fiscal issues.

The ad notes that Davis was a delegate for Obama at the Democratic National Conventions in 2008 and 2012.

Online records of television ad contracts show the RGA is spending $111,000 on time on broadcast stations over seven days. The ads started Wednesday, the day after the state's primary election.
