Three-term State Representative Files for Congress

Topeka, Kan. – Three-term State Representative Patricia Lightner, Republican of Olathe, announced today she officially filed papers to run for Congress in the 3rd District of Kansas.

“For ten months, I have consistently advocated for the principles of limited government, economic freedom, individual liberty, the rule of law, and a culture of life. The response to my conservative message has been tremendous, and that’s why I made this final step today,” said Lightner.

Lightner, who originally entered the race last August to challenge Congressman Dennis Moore, has been endorsed by several legislators and national organizations, including Concerned Women PAC, Catholic Families for America PAC, Independence Caucus, author and editor Jack Cashill, State Senator Mary Pilcher Cook, as well as State Reps. Mike Kiegerl, Eric Carter, Jene Vickrey, and Brenda Landwehr. She was recently interviewed by Fred Thompson on the Fred Thompson Show.

Lightner added that her campaign has attracted a wide range of voters who find her pro-life, pro-growth, pro-liberty message appealing. For example, her Facebook fan page has almost 3,200 fans, more than 3x that of her closest competitor.

“From the tea party movement to traditional conservatives to independent Americans who simply want to keep more of their money, it is evident people want a principled fighter in Washington who will be relentless in defending their values, their freedoms, and their liberty.”
