Ex-Kansas House Member Ponders Run Against Huelskamp

Associated Press - December 10, 2013 6:27 am

A federal appeals court will hear oral arguments in September in an appeal that could affect the voting rights of thousands of voters in Kansas, Georgia and Alabama in upcoming elections.

A central Kansas lawyer who served several decades ago in the state Legislature as a Democrat is now considering challenging Congressman Tim Huelskamp in the Republican primary.

Ellinwood attorney Kent Roth announced Monday that he’s formed a committee to explore a run for the GOP nomination in the 1st Congressional District of western and central Kansas.

Huelskamp has held the seat for the strongly Republican district since 2011 and had no opposition to his re-election in 2012.

The 61-year-old Roth was in law school when he was elected to the Kansas House in 1976, and he served six years in the Legislature.

A Democrat also has filed for the seat. He is Bryan Whitney, a Wichita State University political science student who graduated from high school in Syracuse.

Why is it the Republican Party of Kansas would allow a person to LIE about who he is and WORSE, are Kansans so misinformed that they would vote for a liar?
Salina has had enough demlicans in office with a former House member, a former State Senator, and now the replacement for that former House member… all liberals… “wolves in sheep’s clothing”.
