Kansas Insurance Commissioner Doesn’t Fit In GOP

KSAL StaffJune 24, 2013

Outgoing Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger admits she no longer fits into the state Republican party she has served for most of her life.

Praeger, who is in her final term as insurance commissioner, favors abortion rights and gun control, and is a strong supporter of the new health insurance plan called Obamacare. All those positions put her at odds with the current Republican party establishment, including Gov. Sam Brownback.

Praeger, who was mayor of Lawrence, a state representative and a state senator before becoming Insurance Commissioner, says she will end her public service career after her current term is completed.

State Rep. Scott Schwab, a former Johnson County Republican chairman, says that somewhere along the line Praeger stopped listening to her constituents.
