TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- After only eight days in existence, a new Kansas political action committee jumped into contested Republican primaries for state Senate seats to help GOP moderates.

The Kansas Values PAC formed July 16, listing a Topeka address and Ryan Wright as its chairman and treasurer. Wright did not return a telephone message Tuesday evening.

Three days after its creation, Kansas Values PAC received a $40,000 contribution from the Kansas Jobs PAC, established in June to help GOP moderates.

The Kansas Jobs PAC has been funded by labor unions and a PAC controlled by Senate President Steve Morris, a moderate Hugoton Republican.

Last week, eight days after forming, the Kansas Values PAC contributed $1,000 to each of 11 moderate GOP Senate candidates.
