Believing their chances for gaining more political strength in the Jayhawk State are improving, Democrats see yet another candidate coming forward to declare for the Governor’s race. State House Minority Leader Jim Ward (D) announced that he will join the Governor’s campaign. He faces former Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer and ex-state Agriculture Department Secretary Josh Svaty in the Democratic primary. A large number of Republicans are vying for the party nomination, including soon-to-be-Governor Jeff Colyer. All are battling to replace outgoing Governor Sam Brownback (R) who will resign upon confirmation for his recent federal appointment.
