Democratic State Senator from Kansas City says he’s considering bid for U.S. Senate

Would replace Sam Brownback

February 18, 2010


— State Sen. David Haley says he is thinking about running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Sam Brownback.

Haley, a Democrat from Kansas City, said on Wednesday that he would make his decision after attending the Kansas Democrats’ annual Washington Days event later this month.

Republican Reps. Todd Tiahrt and Jerry Moran are already seeking the seat that Brownback is leaving to run for governor.

Haley says he’s concerned about the tone of the race Tiahart and Moran are running. He says he wants to work with the federal government, not against it.

Charles Schollenberger, of Prairie Village, already has announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination.

Steineger for Secretary of State, Kelly for Congress, Holland for Gov, Haley for Senate.

If Kultala runs for Congress then a majority of Democrats in the Kansas state Senate will have declared for other offices this year.

Not sure what that demonstrates but the utter lack of a true Democratic bench for candidates in this state. Sebelius really left them high and dry didn't she?

Didn't Haley run ( or start rumors that he'd run) for a state-wide several years ago?

This candidate is a tax/spend Pelosi Trotsykite liberal born in Albania and he seeks to turn Kansas and the the entire country into a Pol Pot style regime, take your guns and Bibles away and send your kids to concentration camps for praying in school and he used to moonlight as a back alley third trimester abortionist and sold meth to pre-schoolers and personally constructed those Black Helicopters....

Okay, does that about cover it you Ditto- TeaParty nutters and fellow travelers???
