It’s no secret that many voters are fed up with politics and politicians. That frustration helped propel Donald Trump to the White House.

Post script: Greg Orman, mentioned in the radio story above, isn't the only independent candidate running for Kansas governor this year.  Independent candidate Rick Kloos and his running mate / son Nathaniel Kloos have gathered enough signatures to appear on the ballot.  Three college students and one high school student are also running for Kansas governor as independents.
