Bud Estes Replacement to be Chosen by Precinct Representatives

Joe Denoyer - March 3, 2021 7:05 pm

After the death of Kansas District 38 Senator Bud Estes in February, the GOP precincts of the district needed to seek a replacement.

A special election vote will take place in Dodge City on Thursday, March 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the Dodge City Community College Little Theater. So far, five candidates are seeking the senate seat.

The confirmed candidates so far are Joe Nuci, Dodge City; Ron Ryckman Sr., Meade; Andrew Evans, Dodge City; Gary White, Ashland and Russ McBee, Dodge City.

On Thursday, Republican precinct committee people within Senate District 38 will come out to vote. Senate District 38 consists of Ford, Seward, Meade, Gray, Clark, and parts of Hodgeman Counties.

The vote is being held in Ford County due to the county having the most voters, therefore it determines who hosts state-level special elections.

The precinct committee people were notified and will come out to vote for the replacement on Thursday.
