TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republican incumbent Ron Estes has a big fundraising advantage over his Democratic challenger in the Kansas state treasurer's race.

Estes' re-election campaign filed a finance report this week showing that he raised more than $12,000 from January through July 24, on top of the nearly $43,000 he had at the start of the year.

Estes spent about $21,000 for his campaign, leaving him with nearly $34,000 heading into the fall.

Democrat Carmen Alldritt is a former Harper County treasurer and launched her campaign in early June.

She raised only $1,450 by July 24, and the Kansas Democratic Party covered her $1,360 filing fee.

Alldritt reported spending about $1,100, leaving her with $313 at the end of the period.

Estes is seeking his second four-year term.
