TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The father of Republican congressional candidate Steve Watkins set up and funded a political action committee that’s running a $64,000 ad campaign for his son.

Creating a PAC allows the father to skirt rules that would limit direct contributions to his son’s candidacy for the open seat in Kansas’ 2nd Congressional District, The Kansas City Star reported.

Watkins is one of seven candidates seeking the GOP nomination.
