Statement on Greg Orman’s Entry into Race for Kansas Governor
The following statement is from John Gibson, chairman of the Kansas Democratic Party, regarding Greg Orman’s run for governor:
Topeka, KS – It is unfortunate that Greg Orman is putting his own political ambition before the best interests of Kansans. Just like when Sam Brownback turned our state into a science lab, Greg Orman is now experimenting on the people of Kansas with this run for governor.
Democrats in Kansas may have ‘stood down’ for him to run as an Independent for Senate in 2014, but we will not stand down in 2018. We have a slate of excellent candidates ready to fight to make Kansas a better place to live. They are focused on investing in our shared priorities, like schools and jobs, not pushing a personal political agenda.
The majority of his financial support came from wealthy, out-of- state donors with no interest in Kansas values. It’s clear he’s just another opportunistic and overly ambitious millionaire trying to buy a seat.
