2010 race for Governor

Candidate selector Governor

Welcome to our candidate selector for Governor. It's a fun and educational tool that can help you decide which candidate(s) you agree with the most.

Here's how it works. Below, we've listed a set of issues and the candidates' positions on these issues. Check the box next to a candidate's response if you agree with it. After you're done, we'll tell you which candidate(s) you agreed with the most.

Please note that this is meant to be fun and educational - but shouldn't necessarily be used as the de facto way of making such an important decision. We encourage you to learn as much as you can about each candidate.

If elected, what would be your top three priorities as Kansas governor? Please be specific and detailed in your response.

What will you do as governor to address Kansas' economic problems? What programs — if any — should be shielded from budget cuts, and what programs — if any — should be on the list for budget cuts?

Do you support the rights of state and local governments to enact measures against illegal immigrants that are more stringent than federal laws?

What is the importance of the Bioscience Corridor — including the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan — to Kansas and how does it figure into the state's future?

What steps should Kansas take to improve its academic offerings — to students in kindergarten through 12th grade, as well as students in community colleges and four-year universities?
