OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas business executive with political ties to former Republican Gov. Sam Brownback has officially kicked off her campaign to challenge freshman Democratic Rep. Sharice Davids.

Amanda Adkins made the announcement Monday. It was expected after she filed paperwork last week with the Federal Election Commission creating a campaign committee for a run for the GOP nomination in the Kansas City-area 3rd Congressional District.

Her move sets up a contested GOP primary for the right to challenge Davids. Former National Down Syndrome Society CEO Sarah Hart Weir opened her campaign in July.
