Kansas GOP Chair Vows ‘Knockout Punch’ to Dems

Associated Press - September 15, 2013 4:00 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.

The head of the Kansas Republican Party is vowing to deliver “a knockout punch” to Democrats in future elections.

Kansas GOP Chairman Kelly Arnold spoke at luncheon Saturday of the Midwest Republican Leadership Conference held in Kansas City, Missouri.

Arnold touted what he calls the “clean sweep campaign” intended to bolster the Republicans already commanding majorities in Kansas. The GOP already controls the statewide offices at the top of the ballot. Arnold also boasted of holding 92 of the 125 state House seats, 32 of the 40 state Senate seats and 82 percent of all county offices.

He said the Republican goal for future elections is “delivering a knockout punch to the Democratic Party.”
