TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Campaign finance records show that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach began the year with a significant fundraising advantage over Democratic challenger Jean Schodorf.

The Republican secretary of state's re-election campaign filed a report earlier this month showing that he raised $96,000 in cash contributions last year and ended the year with $125,000 in his campaign treasury.

Schodorf raised $44,000 and loaned her campaign an additional $2,000. She ended 2013 with almost $39,000 in campaign funds. Her finance report says the Democratic challenger didn't begin raising money until late September.

However, Kobach raised at least $64,800 in cash contributions after Schodorf began her fundraising.

Kobach is seeking his second, four-year term. Schodorf is a former state senator from Wichita and a former moderate Republican who switched parties.
