Vice President Pence Stumps for Congressional Candidate Watkins in Topeka

Vice President Mike Pence campaigned in Topeka Friday for Republican Steve Watkins in his bid for the 2nd District congressional seat in eastern Kansas. Watkins is locked in a tight race with Democrat Paul Davis.

Pence argued that sending Watkins to Congress would help the president accomplish his goals for the economy and military spending.

Pence said it’s no secret why this seat is attracting so much attention, and money, from both parties.

“National Democrats know that the pathway to a Democrat majority in the House of Representatives goes straight through your district,” Pence told the crowd.

Pence’s visit, and President Trump touting Watkins during a stop in Topeka earlier this month, show national Republicans are also closely watching the seat.
