Political action committees, or PACs, have submitted their last campaign finance reports before the fall election. Two of the wealthiest in Kansas are a PAC connected to a teachers' union and another affiliated with the Kansas Chamber of Commerce.

Campaign finance reports show Dems out spending their Republican challengers; PACs have big money to spend in last days leading up to election; Kansas cold weather law goes into effect.
