Syracuse Native Plans To Challenge Huelskamp
05/06/2013

Wichita State University political science major Bryan Robert Whitney is seeking the Democratic nomination in the 2014 race for the 1st District, against U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler/Hutchinson.

Whitney, 27, is a graduate of Syracuse High School and listed his grandparents' residence in Kearny County — 1959 Road B, Kendall — on candidacy statement papers received Wednesday by the Federal Election Commission.

He has not filed yet with the Kansas Secretary of State, and would not be on the ballot until that occurs.

Wichita is in the 4th Congressional District, and Whitney does not plan to move back to the 1st District until 2015 — after the August primary and November general elections of 2014.

A provision in the U.S. Constitution allows Whitney to run for any Congressional seat in the state, as long as he lives in the state.

Whitney currently is a registered voter in Sedgwick County, not Kearny County. Until he files with the Secretary of State, it isn't known what address will go under Whitney's name on the ballot.

In 2012, Huelskamp breezed to re-election to a second two-year term without facing a Republican or Democrat.
