Democrat set to launch his campaign for 2nd District Congressional seat

June 22, 2010, 11:37 a.m. Updated June 22, 2010, 7:18 p.m.


— Democratic candidate for the U.S. House from northeast Kansas says he has a plan to touch the lives of all residents.

But Sean Tevis gave few details Tuesday during a Statehouse rally launching his campaign in the 2nd Congressional District. Tevis says his idea would end partisan bickering in Congress, and he plans to outline it further sometime soon.

Tevis faces Cheryl Hudspeth, of Girard, and Thomas Koch, of Leavenworth, in the Aug. 3 Democratic primary. Running in the Republican primary are incumbent Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins and state Sen. Dennis Pyle of Hiawatha.

Tevis is an information technology architect. He currently lives in the 3rd Congressional District and says he's moving to Lawrence to establish residency in the 2nd District.

Since the congressional districts are set by Kansas legislature, I doubt the Republican controlled Kansas legislature would change it that way that would benefit a Democratic Congressional candidate.

All of Lawrence will probably be in the second district in 2012.

He's lived in the district before. It could be worse, he could be doing what Phill Kline did when he was AG of Johnson County, which was to establish residence by listing his home as a storage garage owned by a supporter.

How do you say, "carpetbagger"? Is this all the Democrat party does? Boyda?

His ideas will leave more of an impression if he distances himself from the Johnson County snobbish crowd. Part of the reason I could never see myself living in the metro area is for those attitudes.

Case in point, a comment on his website by a supporter was stating that somehow urban northeast Kansas is a cut above the rest of the state on education. While such attitudes from supporters may be fine for a local election in JoCo, it won't work in the 2nd district which goes clear down to SE Kansas.

As to his opinions (at least when he ran for stat office), I really do not agree with an across the board sales tax exemptions on food. Yes I believe that general food products should not be taxed. However, I feel no sympathy for someone on food stamps or below poverty level who is upset because their convenience, junk food or drinks are taxed.

Don't write this guy off. He's got some truly fresh ideas and is one of the best fund raisers the state has ever seen.
