Democrat Ends Senate Campaign

KSAL StaffSeptember 3, 2014

The Democratic candidate in the U.S. Senate race in Kansas had ended his campaign.

Democrat Chad Taylor had been running against three-term Republican incumbent Pat Roberts. Taylor sent a letter Wednesday to the Kansas secretary of state, withdrawing from the race.

The race also has a viable independent candidate, Olathe businessman Greg Orman.

Taylor issued a separate statement saying he made the decision after consulting with his staff, supporters and Democratic Party leaders. He did not give a reason.

He said, “Effective today, my campaign is terminated.”

Taylor is the district attorney in Shawnee County, home of the state capital of Topeka. He won the office in 2008 and was re-elected without opposition in 2012.
