OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — Contributions from political action committees have helped Republican congressman Kevin Yoder stockpile funds for his re-election campaign in Kansas’ 3rd District.

A finance report filed last week by Yoder’s campaign shows it received $131,000 from PACs from April through June. He also collected more than $110,000 in cash contributions from individuals.

He ended the period with more than $2.2 million in cash.

Yoder’s most active Democratic challenger in the Kansas City-area district is former state Sen. Kelly Kultala. She raised $85,000 during the quarter, ending June with nearly $100,000 in cash.

Kultala’s only PAC contribution was a $250 donation from a committee associated with a payday loan company.

She faces retired Lenexa electrician Reginald Marselus in the Aug. 5 Democratic primary. No report was available for him online.
