Topeka Two Democrats plan to run for Kansas secretary of state.
State Sen. Chris Steineger, of Kansas City, said Friday he expects to file for the office next week. He appointed a campaign treasurer this week, which allows him to raise money.
Securities Commissioner Chris Biggs says he’ll launch his campaign in the next couple of months. He appointed a treasurer last fall.
The secretary of state is Kansas’ top elections official.
The filing deadline is June 10 and party primaries are Aug. 3. Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh, a Republican, is not running.
Two Republican candidates running. They are former Kansas GOP Chairman Kris Kobach, of Piper, and J.R. Claeys, of Salina, a former CEO for the National Association of Government Contractors.
