Press Releases


TOPEKA – Joan Wagnon, Kansas Democratic Party Chair, issued a statement in response to Topeka attorney Pedro Irigonegaray's filing on behalf of Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor in the Kansas Supreme Court:

We will watch closely as this legal challenge proceeds through the courts.  It is premature to comment on its merits, but one thing is clear: Kansans have no use for extremist politicians like Kris Kobach who continue to put partisan politics before what is best for Kansans.


TOPEKA – Kansas Democratic Party Chair Joan Wagnon released a statement in response to Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor's decision to withdraw his name as the Kansas Democratic Party nominee for United States Senate:

"We thank Chad Taylor for his service as a candidate and his continued service as the elected District Attorney of Shawnee County. It is clear that Kansans are ready for new leadership. We will be monitoring this race closely."


Sam Brownback and Chris Christie have a great deal in common: both have caused credit rating downgrades, both are dealing with criminal investigations of their staff and associates, and both have put their own political agendas before what’s best for the people of Kansas and New Jersey.

Now outside special interests like Gov. Christie’s Republican Governors Association are doing all they can to defend Sam Brownback’s failed leadership. But in the end there’s no defending Brownback’s failed experiment, especially by Gov. Christie who has the exact same record.

The fact is Kansas is going broke under Gov. Sam Brownback and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the last person he should turn to for financial advice.


TOPEKA – The Kansas Democratic Party has fielded a complete slate of candidates for all federal and statewide Kansas offices as of today's noon campaign filing deadline. The slate is headlined by the strong gubernatorial ticket of Paul Davis and Jill Docking.


Yesterday, the governor signed bill introduced by United States Navy veteran Keith Humphrey, the Kansas Democratic Party's Veterans and Military Families Caucus Chair, in the wake of the federal government shutdown of 2013.

"The work done by Keith Humphrey is nothing short of amazing," said Jason Perkey, KDP Executive Director. "This bill guarantees that no Kansas military family will be abandoned by their government at the exact moment support is needed the most - when a loved one is lost."
