I am both humbled and honored that Republican Primary voters nominated me to be their candidate for State Representative in District 28.
Turnout was higher than usual this year, with around 3700 people casting a ballot in our Republican Primary.
With your support, our effort earned slightly more than 58% of the vote Tuesday – and the final results will be certified on the 14th.
This overwhelming victory would not have been possible without the support of so many. I’m grateful for the many, many homeowners who displayed over 500 Kellie Warren yard signs! I’m thankful for those who volunteered both time and treasure to my campaign, who spoke with friends and neighbors, and all those who offered prayers and encouragement.
No political race is ever won without the help of a large team of people coming together. When I think about all who supported our effort during the past year, it takes my breath away!
I also want to recognize my Primary Election opponent, Rep. Koesten, for the hard-fought campaign and for her service as State Representative. While we may not have agreed on many issues, I appreciate the time required to serve in Topeka and to campaign. I invite her supporters to join our team this fall.
On that note, with the Republican Primary behind us, now our focus must turn to the General Election. My opponent is a liberal Democrat who wants to keep growing government. So, it’s important that our neighbors and our party come together and work to earn another victory in November, and that starts today.
