Third candidate enters GOP race for U.S. Senate seat held by Sam Brownback

January 29, 2010


— A third Kansas Republican is running for the U.S. Senate.

The new candidate is Robert Londerholm, who served as Kansas attorney general in 1965-69 and later as a member and chairman of the Kansas racing commission. He’s now an attorney in Olathe.

He issued a statement listing his qualifications and saying he represents “a needed ’balance’ between the private and government sectors in our country.” He did not return a telephone message to his Olathe home.

In the Aug. 3 primary, he’ll face congressmen Jerry Moran and Todd Tiahrt (TEE-hahrt). They planned to have a forum Friday in Topeka.

They’re all running for the GOP nomination for the seat held by Sen. Sam Brownback, a Republican who’s running for governor.
