Governor Colyer Mum on Plans After He Leaves Office

Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer is not saying much when it comes to talk that he may join the Trump administration after his term ends in January. So far, he’s leaving his options open.

During a campaign stop in Topeka earlier this month, President Trump praised Colyer and floated the idea of bringing the governor into his administration.

Colyer won’t directly comment on that. Colyer said Monday he wants to include service to others in his plans, either in private practice or a public sector job.

“That’s what I’ve lived for. That’s why I’m a doctor. That’s why I’ve been involved public policy, and I’m going to continue to do that," Colyer said. "How that turns, I don’t know.”

Colyer, a plastic surgeon, lost the Republican primary for governor in August to Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
