TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republican incumbent Derek Schmidt enjoys a huge fundraising advantage over his Democratic challenger in the Kansas attorney general's race.

A finance report filed Monday by Schmidt's re-election campaign shows that he raised about $43,000 in cash contributions from January through July 24.

But Schmidt began the year with more than $374,000, and even after he spent about $50,000 on his campaign, he still had $367,000 in cash on hand.

Democrat and Topeka attorney A.J. Kotich started his campaign in January with nothing and raised about $12,100. He spent less than $7,800 during the period and ended with about $4,300 in cash.

Schmidt is seeking a second, four-year term. Neither he nor Kotich has an opponent in the state's Aug. 5 primary.
