To the editor:
I have been a strong Democrat throughout my life, but this year has given me reason to question the party.
When my husband and I received invitations to the Kansas Democratic presidential caucus, we decided to attend and make our vote count. Reviewing the evening's experience, we wondered if serious consideration had been given to the needs of senior citizens, such as ourselves.
Since such consideration had not been given, it appeared, we were unable to use our vote for the candidate we favored, Hillary Clinton.
Moreover, during that week our governor had taken actions to promote Obama on several occasions. For instance, she wore a T-shirt with Obama's name on it and went to colleges and universities in Kansas asking them to vote for him at the caucuses.
Such activities seem to me improper - for our governor. She should have remained neutral until after a nominee had been selected.
Up to this time, our governor's activities have been an affront to those of us who feel that Hillary would be the party's ideal nominee.
