TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A Topeka business owner says he will challenge a Topeka representative for his seat in the Kansas House.

Fred Patton, a Topeka-based lawyer who owns three businesses, announced his plans Thursday to face Rep. Josh Powell in the August 2014 Republican primary. The district includes parts of north, northwest and west Shawnee County.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Powell didn't immediately return messages left at two phone numbers listed as his home numbers.
