Kansas State Senator Julia Lynn (R-Shawnee) switched to endorsing Todd Tiahrt after previously supporting Jerry Moran.
Says Johnson in the release from the Tiahrt camp:
As I got to know both candidates I realized that, in these uncertain times, there is one thing that is certain. Todd Tiahrt is the bold leader Kansas needs now in the US Senate,” said Lynn. “Todd’s relentless pursuit of conservative principals combined with unwavering courage to make the tough votes is why I am proud to endorse him as our next Kansas Senator. On the day of the Democrat health care takeover, Todd Tiahrt was fighting Jesse Jackson Jr. and Speaker Pelosi with every legislative tool available. His tenacity and character were on full display. The choice of who I want fighting for me and fighting for my constituents was clear. Johnson County is a unique and important economic engine for the state of Kansas. Todd Tiahrt is the only candidate in the race with experience representing both urban and rural constituencies. I know that Todd Tiahrt will keep Johnson County’s issues a top priority as the next Senator from Kansas.”
