Republican governors are spending almost half as much in Kansas as they did four years ago when they helped re-elect Gov. Sam Brownback.
Campaign finance reports filed this week show that two political action committees affiliated with the Republican Governors Association have spent about $2.3 million through Oct. 25, the date the last reporting period closed.
It's about $1.8 million, or 44 percent less, than what the association's Kansas political action committee and a related group called the American Comeback Committee spent during the 2014 election, when Brownback defeated Paul Davis.
