Kansas Treasurer to run for U.S. Senate

Kansas State Treasurer Jake LaTurner, the youngest elected statewide official in America, today announced his candidacy for the United States Senate.

“Kansas Republicans deserve a candidate for the U.S. Senate who shares their values and is willing to stand up and fight for those values in Washington," said LaTurner. “As a conservative, I will fight every day to represent our Kansas conservative values in Washington.”

Republican Sen. Pat Roberts announced last week he would not seek re-election in 2020.
