Tiahrt Files to have Name Placed on 2010 Ballot as Official US Senate Candidate

WICHITA-U.S. Congressman Todd Tiahrt (R-Goddard) today took the third and final step in making his candidacy for the United States Senate official by filing with the Kansas Secretary of State to have his name placed on the ballot in 2010. Tiahrt announced his candidacy in front of hundreds of Republicans gathered in Topeka in late January. In early February Tiahrt filed official papers with the Federal Election Commission through the Secretary of the Senate. Thursday’s filing is the final step in officially getting Tiahrt’s name placed on the Kansas ballot in 2010.

Tiahrt filed his paperwork at the Sedgwick County Courthouse and was joined by his wife Vicki and a group of more than 20 supporters wearing red Tiahrt campaign shirts. Tiahrt said his travels across the state meeting with Kansans in recent months has been encouraging and has given him a new excitement to take his vision to the U.S. Senate.

“It has been an honor traveling our great state meeting with Kansans who want conservative leadership they can trust,” said Tiahrt. “Today’s filing will place my name on the 2010 ballot as a Senate candidate, and I am excited about meeting with more Kansans in the coming months to share my vision for how we can renew the dream for a more prosperous future.

“I hear from Kansans every day who support my campaign because we need leaders who have courage to take common-sense conservative principles to Washington . We need bold leadership to counter the liberal agenda of a Democrat-controlled White House and Congress. With the growing support of Kansas voters, I will fight to make sure our state has another strong voice in the United States Senate.”

Tiahrt is the Dean of the Kansas House Congressional Delegation and has served in the House of Representatives since 1995.
