The Kansas Chamber of Commerce and Industry's political action council endorsed three area Republicans in their bids to win re-election to the Kansas House.
Endorsements were based on voting records on selected business topics or a candidate's philosophy on business issues. All but three of the 76 people endorsed by the council were Republicans.
Earning the backing of KCCI were Reps. Tom Sloan of Lawrence, Ralph Tanner of Baldwin and Joann Flower of Oskaloosa. Left off the list were incumbent Reps. Barbara Ballard and Troy Findley, both Lawrence Democrats.
