Ken Selzer is the Republican nominee for Kansas insurance commissioner. The certified public accountant from Leawood defeated four rivals in a tight race that was among the last to be called. Selzer, like all the G-O-P candidates, opposes the Affordable Care Act. But if elected he says his main focus will be to make the regulatory agency more responsive to consumers and insurance companies alike.
Selzer will face Democrat Dennis Anderson of Overland Park in the November general election. The winner will take the reins of the agency from three-term Republican incumbent Sandy Praeger.
