Davis, Schodorf gain support from Kansas AFL-CIO


The Kansas State AFL-CIO executive board has endorsed two Democrats, Paul Davis for governor and Jean Schodorf for secretary of state, in the 2014 election.

Davis, the House minority leader from Lawrence, is the presumptive Democratic nominee to take on Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican.

Schodorf, a former Republican state senator from Wichita who switched to the Democratic Party, has announced she will seek the Democratic nomination to face Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Republican. Mission Hills businessman Randy Rolston, a Democrat, has already filed to run in the race.

"Union members are looking ahead to new leadership for a stronger Kansas," said Bruce Tunnell, executive vice president of the Kansas State AFL-CIO. "We are proud to support Paul Davis for Governor and Jean Schodorf for Secretary of State. We are confident that Davis and Schodorf are the right candidates for the job at hand," he said.

They both already have my vote. I already liked Paul Davis' voting record.

However I'll admit that even if Major Astro and Captain Kangaroo were running against Brownback and Kobach. I'd vote for the Major and Captain Roo before the two current scary clowns.

Wow!!! There's a shocker. The AFL-CIO supporting liberal Democrats.
