(WICHITA, Kan.) — Monday is the last day candidates have to convince you that they’re the right choice for the position. Polls open on Tuesday and candidates aren't wasting a single minute of the time they have left.
Each has something similar to say.
“Just trying to get my name out there,” said Jeff Easter, Republican candidate for Sedgwick County Sheriff.
“Trying to spread the message,” added his opponent, incumbent Sheriff Bob Hinshaw, Republican.
“Just shaking a few more hands,” said Marc Bennett, Republican candidate for Sedgwick County District Attorney.
“We're trying to get the message out,” added his opponent Kevin O’Conner, Republican.
The refrain is the same no matter which candidate you speak to, the need to gain name recognition and convince voters they're the right person for the job. Especially in close races like the one for Sedgwick County Sheriff.
“The polls have been back and forth and at this point it's virtually even,” said Hinshaw. “So I think a lot of it is going to be, is getting the vote out.”
