(AP) — A northeast Kansas Democrat in a tough race for re-election to the state Senate has raised and spent more money than his conservative Republican challenger over the past three months. Democratic incumbent Tom Holland of Baldwin City filed a campaign finance report Monday showing he raised more than $80,000 from late July through late October. Of that, $20,000 came from a Kansas Democratic Party group. The report shows that Holland began the period with almost $105,000 on hand, so he was able to spend about $100,000 and repay a $52,000 personal loan to his campaign. Holland is running in the 3rd Senate District against Republican House member Anthony Brown, of Eudora. Brown reports raising almost $65,000 during the same period, including $8,700 from GOP groups. He spent about $61,000.
