Lynn Jenkins Exits U.S. House Leadership, May Mull Kansas Governor's Race

U.S. Representative Lynn Jenkins, a Topeka Republican, represents the 2nd Congressional District of eastern Kansas.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins will be leaving a position on the House Republicans' leadership team when the newly elected Congress convenes in January. Jenkins said Wednesday that she is stepping down as GOP conference vice chairwoman to focus on health care and tax reform legislation. She's seen as a potential candidate for governor in 2018 to replace term-limited Republican Sam Brownback. Jenkins said she's always willing to consider opportunities for returning to Kansas. She said she also has opportunities in Washington to work with Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress and GOP President-elect Donald Trump. She is a member of the Ways and Means Committee and expects it to review both tax and health care proposals. Jenkins has represented the 2nd District of eastern Kansas since 2009.
