Wakefield Files for KS 2nd District Race

ks-districts-2014Map of the Kansas congressional districts (Image credit:, Kan. (AP) — A Lawrence Democrat has officially jumped into the race to challenge Republican incumbent Representative Lynn Jenkins for the Kansas 2nd District seat in the U.S. House. Margie Wakefield, a divorce attorney and longtime Democratic supporter, on Thursday filed the paperwork and paid the fee to put her name on the ballot. The 56-year-old Wakefield later held a rally at the former Overland Station in Topeka. Jenkins was first elected in 2008 after serving as state treasurer and in the Kansas Legislature. She is originally from Holton and serves as vice chairwoman of the House Republican Conference. Jenkins's campaign issued a statement Thursday noting that telephone calls placed by Wakefield's staff announcing the Topeka rally did not contain federally required disclaimers that they were paid for by the Democrat's campaign.
