Anticipating a competitive governor's race this year in Kansas, the Republican Governors Association has reserved about $1 million in ad time months ahead of the general election.
RGA spokesman Jon Thompson said the group is earmarking $1.1 million for the Kansas gubernatorial race, most of which will go to the Kansas City market.
The association can cancel the airtime before the election.
The association, which spent $5 million on the 2014 Kansas governor's race won by Sam Brownback, is reserving the airtime early to hold down costs.
Thompson said the RGA can save money by booking airtime . . .
