Topeka — Two objections to legislative candidacies have been filed so far, according to the Kansas Secretary of State's office.
Travis Couture-Lovelady of Palco has filed an objection to the candidacy of Lawrence Reichert of Hays. Both are Republicans running in the Aug. 7 primary for the nomination in the 110th House District.
William Scott Hesse has filed an objection to the candidacy of Shanti Gandhi in the 52nd House District race in Topeka. Hesse and Gandhi are Republicans.
Both objections deal with residency requirements. The State Objections Board will hold a hearing on the objections on Tuesday.
The deadline to file an objection to a candidacy is at the close of business Thursday.
Several candidates found themselves in different districts last week when a panel of three federal judges re-drew political boundaries after the Legislature failed to accomplish the task.
