He says no one else has his experience or qualifications to be the Sedgwick County Sheriff. Sedgwick County Undersheriff Bob Hinshaw is the only candidate for sheriff with TV commercials airing just days before the primary election.
This FactFinder 12 report analyzes that ad.
There are five Republicans running for Sedgwick County Sheriff. They are Mark Alexander of Via Christi security, Lt. Dal Astle of the Garden Plain Police Department, Lt. Carl Enterkin of the Bel Aire Police Department, Sedgwick County Undersheriff Bob Hinshaw, and Wichita Police Deputy Chief Robert Lee.
Hinshaw raised the most campaign money, and he's the only one with a TV commercial. The commercial doesn't present a lot of facts, just opinions on why Hinshaw believes he's the best candidate.
