Kansas Senate President Steve Morris has a
big fundraising advantage over his Republican primary opponent.
Morris filed a report Monday with the secretary of state’s
office showing he raised almost $89,000 from Jan. 1 through last
Thursday. He began the year with more than $159,000 in the bank.
The Hugoton Republican’s report also shows he has spent more
than $148,000 this year on his race for re-election.
Morris is opposed in the Aug. 7 primary by House member Larry
Powell, of Garden City.
Powell reported raising almost $29,000 this year, including
$20,000 in personal loans to his campaign, while spending about
$21,000 so far this year in his effort to unseat Morris.
Morris is among numerous moderate GOP senators facing challenges
from conservatives.
