Republican Nominee for Kansas Statehouse Seat Withdraws from Race


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Republican nominee for a northeast Kansas seat in the Statehouse has withdrawn after facing questions about whether he still lived in Idaho. The Kansas secretary of state's office said Monday that Republicans in the 63rd House District have three weeks to find a replacement for John Gotts, who'd listed Atchison as his home. In a statement withdrawing, Gotts said he'd intended to sell a business in Idaho but decided against the transaction. His Facebook page now lists Hailey, Idaho, as his home. Last week, Gotts's landlord in Atchison objected to his candidacy, saying Gotts never moved into the apartment listed as his residence. The 63rd District seat has been held since 1993 by Democrat Jerry Henry, of Cummings. Henry is seeking re-election.
