KS-SEN: Outside spending in Kansas Senate race grows as Dem group spends $2.6 million

A Democrat-aligned political action committee supporting female candidates has waded into Kansas’ U.S. Senate race, announcing a slate of ads attacking Republican U.S. Rep. Roger Marshall.

The Women Vote! PAC, which is aligned with the prominent group EMILY’s List, announced Tuesday they would spend $2.6 million boosting Democrat state Sen. Barbara Bollier, D-Mission Hills.

The ads take aim at Marshall’s record on health care and recent attack ads his campaign has run against Bollier.

The voiceover hits out against his former ties to a for-profit hospital in Great Bend, as well as his vote for legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

“When it comes to your health, Marshall is all about the money,” the voiceover says.

This is not the first time Women Vote! has gotten involved in the race.

In the primary the organization funneled $1.75 million to the Sunflower State PAC, a Democrat-allied group which attacked Marshall in an effort to boost the candidacy of former Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who was viewed as a more favorable opponent for Bollier.

In a statement, the Marshall campaign hit back by saying the primary ad buys failed and criticized Bollier’s record on abortion issues.
