GRANDVIEW PLAZA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas House member Allan Rothlisberg is planning a write-in campaign for November's election after losing his Republican primary race this month. KJCK-AM reports that the first-term lawmaker from Grandview Plaza says Democrats and Republicans alike have asked him to run. Rothlisberg lost the August 5 GOP primary in the 65th House District to Lonnie Clark, a political newcomer from Junction City. The Democratic nominee is Tom Brungardt, of Milford. Rothlisberg says he's been assured by Kansas ethics officials that it's legal to use campaign funds he's already accumulated for his write-in effort. Rothlisberg gained attention this year with a proposal to track the citizenship status of public schoolchildren. He said his goal was to calculate how much the state spends to educate children who are in the U.S. without legal permission.
