TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas officials were expecting a scramble by candidates for office in the final hours before filing ends.

The filing deadline is noon Monday-- less than four days after three federal judges redrew the state's political boundaries.

The judges ruled last week in a federal lawsuit over the Legislature's failure this year to adjust congressional, legislative and State Board of Education districts to account for population shifts over the past decade.

The ruling reset the state's political landscape. It created four newly open state Senate seats, out of 40. In the House, 25 of the 125 seats have no candidates.

The judges also paired dozens of incumbent lawmakers in four Senate districts and 21 House districts. The judges even created two House districts with three incumbents each.
