A veteran conservative Republican legislative leader who helped block Medicaid expansion in Kansas this year launched a campaign Wednesday for the U.S. Senate, jumping into an already crowded race within weeks of nationally known immigration hardliner Kris Kobach.
Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle posted a video for supporters on a campaign website portraying her as a “relentless fighter” for conservative political causes. The Wichita Republican filed paperwork Tuesday evening with the Federal Election Commission forming a campaign committee after months of considering the race for the GOP nomination next year.
