Secretary of State Chris Biggs took a political swipe at his Democratic Party primary opponent state Sen. Chris Steineger.
In a campaign postcard, Biggs pokes fun at Steineger who got a black eye from an altercation last year.
The front of the postcard reads “Historic Battles of Kansas,” and cites, the sacking of Lawrence, the Battle of Black Jack, Massacre at Marais des Cygnes and “The punching of Steineger.”
On the flip side, the campaign mailing criticizes Steineger and says “No more black eyes. Vote Chris Biggs on August 3.”
Allison Green, a spokeswoman for Steineger, said the postcard shows Biggs is worried about losing the primary.
“When campaigns go negative like this so late in the campaign, it’s a sign of desperation,” Green said.
According to media reports, Steineger, a state senator from Kansas City, got into an argument last August over health care reform at Breit’s Stein and Deli when someone took a swing at him. He said he was “sucker-punched.”
