Group's Campaign in KS Senate Race Tops $1M

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Washington-area group reports it has spent more than $1 million on a television ad campaign in Kansas against independent U.S. Senate candidate Greg Orman. The ad from the free-market, small-government Ending Spending Action Fund began last week and portrays Orman as a liberal who's trying to deceive voters about his views. Orman is trying to unseat three-term Republican Senator Pat Roberts. The group said in a federal report that it spent $1.08 million on production costs and television time. Orman's campaign contends the ad is misleading because of how it edits video from Orman's own website in which Orman says he faces predictable attacks that he's a liberal masquerading as an independent. The ad edits the video so that Orman appears to make the comment about himself.
