LaPolice Enters Race For 1st Congressional District Seat

KSCB News - June 11, 2015 3:32 pm

A third candidate is announcing plans to run in the Republican primary for the 1st District congressional race.

Alan LaPolice will formally announce his candidacy Thursday night in Clyde.

LaPolice, a student retention specialist at Cloud County Community College in Concordia, lost to Rep. Tim Huelskamp in the Republican primary last year. Huelskamp went on to defeat Democrat Jim Sherow and win a fourth term in Congress.

Also running in the 2016 primary is Republican Roger Marshall, an obstetrician and gynecologist from Great Bend.

Candidates have until June 2016 to file a statement of candidacy for the congressional seat. The primary election will be held in August 2016 ahead of the November 2016 general election.
