Another Democratic Candidate Jumps into 3rd District Congressional Race

Democrats looking to gain control of the U.S. House of Representatives see Republican Congressman Kevin Yoder’s seat in the Kansas City metro as a pick-up opportunity.  As Jim McLean of the Kansas News Service reports, as of today (TUE), there are four Democrats running for the 3rd District nomination.

Former Leader of Kansas Health Clinic Running for 3rd District Congress

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The former president of a children's health clinic in the Kansas City area is running for Congress in Kansas.  Andrea Ramsey announced today (TUE) that she will seek the Democratic nomination for the 3rd District seat now held by Republican Congressman Kevin Yoder.  Ramsey was until recently the president and board chairwoman for the Turner House Children's Clinic in Kansas City, Kansas. It serves about 6,000 mostly poor children a year.  The Leawood resident also has worked as an attorney and corporate executive.  Democrats are targeting Yoder because Hillary Clinton carried the district in last year's presidential race.  Other Democrats running are retired Army officer and Leawood resident Joe McConnell, Mission Woods businessman Jay Sidie and retired Lenexa electrical worker Reginald Marselus. Sidie was the Democratic nominee last year.
