Candidates File as KS Primary Approaches


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Kansas Democrats have found a candidate for state treasurer, a Republican state senator has filed to run for insurance commissioner, and one of the Legislature's leading social conservatives isn't seeking re-election. The announcements all came ahead of Monday's noon deadline for candidates to file for the August 5th primary ballot. Democrats completed their ticket for statewide offices when Carnmen Alldritt, a former Harper County treasurer and ex-Department of Revenue official, filed yesterday (FRI) for state treasurer. Republican State Senator Clark Shultz of Lindsborg officially filed for insurance commissioner, joining four other Republicans hoping to fill the post of outgoing Commissioner Sandy Praeger. Meanwhile, veteran State Representative Lance Kinzer of Olathe announced on his website that he would not seek a sixth term. Kinzer, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has been one of the Legislature's most vocal opponents for abortion and gay rights.
