Democrat raised $127K for US Senate bid in Kansas


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Democrat Chad Taylor has disclosed raising $127,000 through June for his U.S. Senate campaign in Kansas.

A report filed by Taylor’s campaign with federal regulators shows about $42,000 of Taylor’s cash contributions came from April through June. Most of Taylor’s funds are from individuals.

Taylor’s campaign also disclosed spending $116,000 since forming his campaign in November, most of it from April through June. He ended June with less than $11,000 in cash.

Taylor is the Shawnee County district attorney, and he’s running for the seat held by three-term Republican Pat Roberts.

Taylor faces Lawrence attorney Patrick Wiesner in the Democratic primary. A finance report for Wiesner was not available online.

Roberts faces tea party challenger Milton Wolf and two other lesser-known candidates in the Aug. 5 GOP primary.
