Press Releases


TOPEKA - KDP Executive Director Jason Perkey issued the following statement regarding the latest Rasmussen Reports poll released today showing Paul Davis leading Sam Brownback in the race for governor by 7 points, 52/45. 

Today’s poll is the latest piece of evidence showing that Kansans are ready to restore common sense to Kansas.  Working and middle-class families want to hold Brownback accountable for offering tax breaks to his friends while cutting funding for our schools.


With early voting under way, the Kansas Democratic Party launched an online Election Center today to provide citizens with information they will need to vote in the upcoming election.

First I’d like to thank the court for expediting and providing a resolution to this case. The Kansas Democratic Party is grateful for dismissing this case, which was quite frankly an exercise in “political theater” as noted by Judge Franklin Theis.

Second, I would like to make a few general comments about the events and how they unfolded.

There was no reason for the Kansas Democratic Party to expect or believe that DA Taylor would not continue as a candidate.  DA Taylor’s withdrawal from the race was not requested by any member of the Kansas Democratic Party Executive Committee and came as a surprise on September 3rd.


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.
