TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A report from Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts' re-election campaign shows it had more than $1.8 million in cash on hand at the end of September.
The figure was disclosed by the Republican incumbent ahead of Tuesday's reporting deadline. Campaign co-chairman Dave Murfin said it signals that Roberts has strong support throughout Kansas.
The report shows nearly $522,000 in contributions to Roberts from July through September, including nearly $258,000 from political action committees.
Leawood radiologist Milton Wolf is challenging Roberts in next year's Republican Senate primary. Wolf has become known in conservative and tea party circles for his vocal criticism of the federal health overhaul, and he launched his campaign last week.
Wolf's spokesman did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
