Sen. Steve Morris

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A political action committee led by Kansas Senate President Steve Morris has extended its reach by largely funding another PAC helping his fellow moderate Republicans.

Campaign finance reports filed this week with the secretary of state's office showed that Morris' PAC, the Senate Leadership Committee, contributed $70,000 in June and July to the Kansas Traditional Republican Majority PAC.

That's most of the $81,000 the Traditional Republican Majority PAC has raised since the beginning of last year. Another $10,000 was contributed last year by the United Transportation Union, based in Ohio.

A dozen moderate GOP senators, including Morris, face conservative challengers in the Aug. 7 primary.

Both Morris' PAC and the Traditional Republican Majority PAC are allowed by Kansas law to give a maximum contribution of $1,000 to each candidate.
