First District Candidate Rob Wasinger took a healthy, albeit indirect, swipe at Tim Huelskamp and Jim Barnett today in a press release commenting on yesterday’s primaries.
The release, which had the subhead of “Kansans are ready for leadership, not failed Topeka politicians,” said:
“Arlen Specter’s loss is yet another sign that Democrats and Republicans alike are sick and tired of career politicians and are ready to usher in a new generation of real public servants to Congress who will crush the corrupt culture of Washington, not be apart of it like Specter was,” said Wasinger. “With polls showing the state legislature’s approval rating in the low 20s, it is clear that Kansans are ready for fresh, new leadership in Washington, not simply more of Topeka. I look forward to making the case to the voters in the final 76 days of the campaign that I am the jobs candidate who will fix our out-migration problem in rural Kansas that Topeka has ignored for far too long.”
