Lawrence, KS (westernkansasnews.com) Wednesday’s announcement that the Democratic nominee for US Senate Chad Taylor was withdrawing from the race surprised many people including the man he beat in the August primary, Lawrence tax attorney Patrick Wiesner.
Taylor defeated Wiesner by about 3,800 votes.
Secretary of State Kris Kobach disagrees. He says despite pulling out of the race, Taylor’s name will remain on the ballot because the candidate failed to show an incapacity for fulfilling the duties of the office he’s running for. Taylor has threatened to sue.
