WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A conservative Republican super PAC seeking to unseat U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp is spending more than $108,500 in the Republican primary race for the sprawling 1st Congressional District of western and central Kansas.

A filing with the Federal Elections Commission Monday shows the Now or Never PAC out of Kansas City, Missouri, is putting money into mailers and other advertising against him.

Huelskamp is a tea party favorite known for his criticism of the GOP leadership in Washington. He is seeking a third two-year term.

He is challenged in the GOP primary by Alan LaPolice, a Clyde farmer and educator.

The PAC money is the latest blow to Huelskamp’s re-election bid to this agricultural district. The Kansas Farm Bureau and the Kansas Livestock Association have also refused to endorse him.
