TIAHRT & MORAN MAKE ENDORSEMENT PLEDGE AT KSGOP SPRING STATE COMMITTEE MEETING
Topeka – Kansas Congressmen Jerry Moran and Todd Tiahrt both candidates for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination announced today they have both signed a pledge to support the winner of the August Primary Election. Their announcement came during today’s KSGOP’s spring State Committee Meeting at the Sprint Campus Auditorium in Overland Park.
“The last 15 months of President Obama’s term have shown us how important it is to make sure a Republican continues to represent Kansas in the U.S. Senate,” Chair Amanda Adkins said. “This is a very competitive race between two very qualified Kansas Republicans. It shows quite a bit about the character of both men and the love they have for our state for them to put into writing that should they not be victorious on August 3rd, they will support the other – without hesitation.”
The Tiahrt and Moran campaigns showed their commitment to unifying the state party after the primary by passing out copies of the signed endorsement pledge to members of the State Committee.
Moran said “This is the most important election in my lifetime. I’m excited to support all Kansas Republicans this November as we work to take back the majority.”
Tiahrt echoed their commitment to a clean sweep of Kansas Republican candidates.
“I have a long history of raising money and campaigning for Kansas Republicans. I look forward to supporting all Republicans this November as we fight against the liberal Democrat agenda in Kansas and Washington, D.C,” Tiahrt said.
Chair Adkins said Republican Primary candidates in each of the Congressional races will be asked to sign similar endorsement pledges in the coming weeks.
The State Committee Meeting also considered a number of items today including approving the 2010 KSGOP Platform and a resolution calling on Congress to repeal the recently passed national health care law.
Chair Adkins updated the committee on the party’s efforts to train candidates and volunteers for the 2010 General Election. She reported more than 500 Kansas Republicans have attended the 2010 Clean Sweep Training Sessions in cities and counties across the state. The party has logged more than 3000 miles while holding the training sessions.
Today’s spring meeting was the final time the State Committee will meet until after the elections in November.
