Kansas court to hear US Senate dispute next week

KSAL StaffSeptember 11, 2014

The Kansas Supreme Court will hold a hearing next week on a petition by the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate to get his name removed from the November ballot.

The court on Thursday scheduled arguments on Democrat Chad Taylor’s petition for 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Chief Justice Lawton Nuss said in a two-page order that the court was hearing the case without a review by a lower court because of the need for an authoritative ruling.

Taylor dropped out of the Senate race last week. But Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Taylor’s withdrawal letter didn’t comply with a state law limiting when nominees’ names can be removed from the ballot.

Taylor’s withdrawal could boost the chances of independent candidate Greg Orman defeating three-term GOP Sen. Pat Roberts.
