Only Republicans file for Insurance Commissioner post held by Lawrence’s Sandy Praeger

June 11, 2010


— Voters in Kansas' Aug. 3 Republican primary will probably decide the insurance commissioner's race.

No Democratic, Libertarian or Reform Party candidates filed for the office before Thursday's deadline.

Incumbent Republican Sandy Praeger, of Lawrence, is seeking her third term. She's being challenged in the primary by David Powell, of El Dorado, an insurance agency owner who's been active in the tea party movement.

Independent candidates can still file, but they would need to collect the signatures of at least 5,000 registered voters and submit them to the secretary of state's office by Aug. 2.

Democrat Kathleen Sebelius served two terms as commissioner before being elected governor in 2002. She became U.S. health and human services secretary in 2009.

Here' s the good news: only three of the RINOs who voted to increase taxes are unopposed. All the rest will yhave to explain themselves.
Note: tax goes into effect July 1.
