KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A former Kansas legislator has captured the Democratic nomination in the Kansas City area's 3rd Congressional District and will challenge Republican Congressman Kevin Yoder.

Former state Sen. Kelly Kultala, of Kansas City defeated retired Lenexa electrician Reginald Marselus in Tuesday's primary.

Yoder is seeking his third, two-year term and was unopposed in the Republican primary.

Kultala served on a local school board and on the commission of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas before being elected to the state Senate in 2008. She served a single, four-year term there before losing her seat in 2012.

Beating Yoder in the November election could prove difficult. He's amassed more than $2 million.
