WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran of Kansas has received nearly $30,000 in support of his re-election bid from 12 different American Indian tribes since January, including Kansas’ Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1DqDMsu ) reports Moran’s most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission shows the Republican has received $1.43 million from January through June for his campaign.

The newspaper says $1,000 of that total has come from Kansas’ Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation. Other tribes that have contributed include Oklahoma’s Chickasaw Nation, Louisiana’s Tunica-Biloxi Tribe and New York’s Seneca Nation of Indians.

Moran, who was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, is a member of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs.
