Defeated Kansas Congressman Eyes Possible 2018 Comeback

KSAL StaffOctober 28, 2016

U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp is eyeing the 2018 election in a move to possibly reclaim the Kansas congressional seat he lost in the Republican primary.

The Hutchinson News reports Huelskamp quietly filed his statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Oct. 17 for the sprawling 1st District of western and central Kansas.

The ultra-conservative Republican was defeated in August by physician Roger Marshall, a political newcomer backed by farming and business groups. Marshall faces independent Alan LaPolice in the general election.

Huelskamp’s clashes with former Speaker John Boehner helped get him booted from the House Agriculture Committee, and the state’s loss of that seat became a campaign issue during the GOP primary in the farming district.

Huelskamp is a member of the far-right Freedom Caucus.
