Olathe Republican Won’t Seek Re-Election


Veteran Republican State Representative Lance Kinzer of Olathe announced that he would not seek a sixth term. Kinzer is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and has been one of the Legislature's most vocal opponents of abortion and gay rights. In recent years, he has helped draft new abortion restrictions and backed a provision to withhold state funding for the group Planned Parenthood. Kinzer also backed a failed measure that would have allowed businesses in Kansas to refuse service to same-sex couples if they claimed to have a moral or religious objection to doing so. He also authored an unsuccessful bill that would have banned local governments from establishing domestic partner registries. Kinzer was first elected to the State House in 2004.
