Kansas GOP Mailing Focuses on Islamic State

KSAL StaffOctober 29, 2016

The Kansas Republican Party is sending out mailers in legislative races depicting explosions and Islamic State fighters.

The move comes as GOP candidates face a backlash against Gov. Sam Brownback over the state’s budget problems.

One mailing to homes in Republican state Rep. Joseph Scapa’s district in Wichita shows an Islamic State fighter holding a machine gun with a message that reads: “Have you met the new neighbors?” It touts Scapa as a supporter of funding for law enforcement to help deal with threats.

But critics said Friday that the mailer was anti-Muslim.

Kansas GOP Executive Director Clay Barker confirmed that similar mailings have been sent across the state. He said internal polling showed that security is a good issue for Republicans.
