TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Political action committees backing moderate Republicans in Kansas Senate races have spent at least $178,000 in the final days before the party primaries.
That's according to campaign finance reports filed through Monday. A PAC for Kansas real estate agents reported spending more than $58,000 on mailings and online advertising in the week before Tuesday's primary.
Other groups backing moderate Republicans for Senate also report spending more than $30,000 each in recent days. They include the Kansas Traditional Republican Majority PAC, the Kansas Jobs PAC and the Kansas Values PAC.
The Kansas Jobs PAC received a $15,000 contribution from the state's largest public employees union.
GOP conservatives are trying to oust a dozen moderate Republicans in primary races and gain control of the Kansas Senate.
