(WICHITA, Kan.) — State Representative Brenda Landwehr announced today she will try to unseat State Senator Jean Schodorf.
"It's strictly with our voting records," Landwehr said. "It's not personal with me and Jean, Jean's a nice lady."
Landwehr said she wants to push for a state constitutional amendment to allow Kansas to opt-out of the federal healthcare reform bill. Schodorf says an amendment is not needed because a similar statute was passed last year.Neither candidate has filed paperwork with the secretary of state's office yet. That deadline is in June.
