TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ New Kansas campaign finance reports show Republican congresswoman Lynn Jenkins with a big fundraising lead over her Democratic challenger in the 2nd Congressional District.

Jenkins' re-election campaign said Tuesday it ended September with more than $1.4 million in cash on hand after receiving nearly $258,000 in contributions during the previous three months.

Democrat Margie Wakefield's campaign said it received almost $110,000 in contributions during the same period and ended September with almost $96,000 in cash on hand.

Her campaign manager, Mark Sump, said Wakefield is pleased with the numbers and believes people are contributing because they're frustrated with the budget stalemate in Washington.

Jenkins is part of the House GOP leadership team.
