November 26, 2018 Kevin Yoder tries to dupe constituents once more on way out Kansas Democratic Party Executive Director Ethan Corson released the following statement on a report that Kevin Yoder is trying to secure $5 billion in funding for a border wall: Topeka, KS – Kansans in the Third Congressional District resoundingly rejected Kevin Yoder and Donald Trump's right-wing agenda in the 2018 election, but Yoder appears to be ignoring his own constituents and pushing Donald Trump's right-wing agenda one last time before he leaves office. At a time when working Kansans are struggling with the rising cost [...]

Kansas Democrats Sweep Governorship, Return to Congress

November 6, 2018 Kansas Democrats Sweep Governorship, Return to Congress Topeka, KS – Tonight, Kansans voted for change. They voted for putting partisanship aside, a change in tone, and for common sense. They voted for a state in which we look out for one another and put everyday people before politics. While we’re still waiting on the outcome of several important races, this much is clear: Sen. Laura Kelly will be our next governor and, for the first time in eight years, Kansas will be sending a Democrat to Congress in Sharice Davids. The enduring story of Kansas is one [...]

Why Won’t Watkins Share His Healthcare Plans?

October 26, 2018 Why Won’t Watkins Share His Healthcare Plans? Topeka, KS – In a Kansas City Star story published Wednesday, Steve Watkins once again dodged questions about one of the most important issues facing his would-be constituents: “Watkins’ campaign didn’t respond to a request for an interview on his health care priorities” and “his campaign website says little about the issue.” Said Kansas Democratic Party Spokesman Zach Helder, “With just 11 days until voters decide who they can trust to represent them, why won’t Watkins share his views on healthcare? He has said before that his priority is “repealing [...]

Kansas Democratic Party Launches New Web Video: “Kobach Approved”

October 25, 2018 Kansas Democratic Party Launches New Web Video: “Kobach Approved” Topeka, KS – Ahead of tonight's gubernatorial debate, the Kansas Democratic Party launched a web video highlighting the bromance between Kris Kobach and Greg Orman. Kobach couldn’t have been more eager to agree with Orman in last week’s debate. Time and time again, Kobach agreed with Orman, giving him his seal of approval. Kobach even called Orman “Mr. Foresight.” With Orman and Kobach joining forces, it’s becoming clearer every day that Laura Kelly is the only candidate who will slam the door on the Brownback experiment.

Watkins Wants To Cut Social Security Benefits, But “Has Provided Few Details” About His Plans

October 24, 2018 Watkins Wants To Cut Social Security Benefits, But “Has Provided Few Details” About His Plans Topeka, KS – Said Kansas Democratic Party Spokesman Zach Helder, “Watkins has made a point of doubling down on his calls for cutting Social Security for seniors who have worked their whole lives to earn these retirement benefits. But he cares so little about the actual effects of his plan, that when pressed he’s evasive and vague about whose benefits will be cut and by how much. With Republican leadership calling for deep cuts to Social Security to pay for their tax [...]

Yoder Rewarded with Ryan Fundraiser for Votes Threatening Social Security and Medicare

October 23, 2018 Yoder Rewarded with Ryan Fundraiser for Votes Threatening Social Security and Medicare Topeka, KS – This evening, Paul Ryan is coming to Mission Hills to raise money for Kevin Yoder’s re-election. Though Yoder loves to pretend the role of thoughtful independent, it is no surprise that Ryan continues to raise money for Yoder, given he’s been a reliable yes-vote in Washington for his right-wing agenda. Yoder voted for Ryan’s infamously callous budgets that call for billions in cuts to Medicare and Social Security– not just once but twice this year alone. Ryan’s support goes beyond fundraising events [...]

WATKINS: “With regards to pre-existing conditions, I am a complete advocate of protecting those with pre-existing conditions” FACT: Watkins said, “The Affordable Care Act Should Be Repealed Completely” And “I’d Like To Focus On […] Repealing Healthcare.” Repeal of ACA would allow insurers to deny protections for people [...]
