Kelsey picks up an endorsement from Dr. Ken Canfield in his Congressional bid

TOPEKA – State Sen. Dick Kelsey picked up an endorsement in his Congressional bit from former gubernatorial candidate Dr. Ken Canfield.

The Goddard Republican, who previously served in the Kansas House of Representatives, is hoping to replace U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt, a Republican, who has his eyes set on the U.S. Senate seat.

“His reputation is excellent,” said Canfield in a written statement. “He is solidly pro-business, pro-family and pro-active in tackling issues that are essential to a prosperous future in the 4th District.”
