Kansas: GOP Field Could Grow for Tiahrt’s Open Seat

Posted July 27, 2009 at 6:14pm

Another Republican appears to be thinking about running for the seat currently held by Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R), who is running for Senate.

According to a report in the Wichita Eagle, state Sen. Jean Schodorf (R) has opened an exploratory committee to run for the Wichita-based district.

Schodorf would join an already-crowded GOP field, which includes Republican National Committeeman Mike Pompeo and state Sen. Dick Kelsey. State Rep. Raj Goyle is running for the Democratic nomination.
