Benjamin Hodge writes at Red County about a recent Kansans for Government Reform poll:

Since the survey, there are two additional candidates who have filed.  Former County Commissioner and State Representative John Toplikar filed on Tuesday, June 8.  Former County Commissioner and Shawnee City Councilman John Segale filed Thursday, June 10.
