Libertarian's Long-Shot Campaign for KS Gov

Libertarian-Party-KS - smallLibertarian candidate for Kansas governor, Keen Umbehr, took an unusual path to reach the campaign. Years ago, Umbehr took a lawsuit over trash collection to the U.S. Supreme Court. He said his business contract to collect trash in Wabaunsee County was cancelled because of his writings in a local paper. He eventually won a verdict saying independent contractors with the government had free speech protections. KPR’s Stephen Koranda spoke with Umbehr about the race for governor, where he’s a long-shot candidate. Umbehr, who is now an attorney, says the years-long fight over free speech helped prepare him for the campaign.

That’s Libertarian candidate for Kansas governor Keen Umbehr speaking with KPR’s Stephen Koranda. Umbehr will be appearing on the ballot with Republican Governor Sam Brownback and Democrat Paul Davis.
