KDP Weekly Wrap-Up: Schodorf Surging

For decades, the Kansas Secretary of State's office has been a quiet administrative office that worked to help Kansans vote and register Kansas businesses.

That was before Kris Kobach. Kobach has used the Kansas Secretary of State's office to meddle in elections, bringing partisanship and voter suppression tactics to an office that is charged with running free and fair elections in Kansas.


Kansas Democrats Commemorate Women's Equality Day

Today, Kansans celebrate the 94th annual Women’s Equality Day, commemorating the passage of the 19th Amendment that granted women the right to vote.

"As a former elected official and the chair of the Kansas Democratic Party, I know well the gains Kansas women have made and the work still left to do," said Joan Wagnon, KDP Chair. "Kansas women like Kathleen Sebelius, Nancy Kassebaum, Sandy Praeger, and Judge Nancy Parrish have all helped push Kansas forward. I look forward to working for the next 71 days to elect Jill Docking and Jean Schodorf and continue the Kansas tradition of strong women leaders."


KDP Weekly Wrap-Up: Jenkins Abandons Working Kansas Families

As a former elected official and Kansas cabinet member, I firmly believe it is the job of Kansas leaders to help improve the lives of all Kansas families. 

And for most of my career, I have witnessed Democrats and Republicans work together to do just that even though we may not have always agreed upon the best way to strengthen Kansas families or grow our state.  But we were all motivated by a desire to help all Kansans.

That is why I was shocked to learn that Rep. Lynn Jenkins sponsored legislation that pitted Kansas families against each other, taking from one group of working families to give to another.


KDP Weekly Wrap-Up: Brownback Fails First Election Test

This Tuesday Kansas saw its first official polling of the campaign - and the numbers were unkind to Sam Brownback.

When all the votes were counted, only 63% of Kansas Republicans thought Brownback deserved to be re-elected. The remaining 37% preferred Jennifer Winn, a landscaper from Wichita who spent a total of $13,000 on her campaign.

Davis Out Fundraises Brownback, Momentum Continuing To Build Across Kansas

"There are two things that are important in politics. The first is money, and I can't remember what the second one is."


KDP Weekly Wrap-Up: More Polls, More Momentum

We're going to keep this short and sweet: Paul Davis is still beating Sam Brownback, just by a wider margin than before - Davis 48, Brownback 40.

We all know the reasons why: Brownback's cuts to K-12 education and higher education, his disastrous tax plan that threatens the stability of the Kansas budget, and Paul Davis' continued efforts to bring Kansans together to find commonsense, Kansas solutions to the problems Brownback has created.

KDP Weekly Wrap-Up: Kansas Governor's Race A "Toss-Up"

It's hard to imagine there's a politician having a worse week than Gov. Sam Brownback (well, aside from Florida Gov. Rick Scott). Over the past few weeks, the national media has woken up to the disaster that is the Brownback administration and its failed experiment on taxes. And that's meant a string of bad press on Brownback's bad policies.
