Rep. Jerry Moran officially endorsed Derek Schmidt in his bid for the state’s attorney general seat.
“A year ago, I encouraged Derek to run for attorney general,” said Moran, R-Hays. “I have known Derek for many years, and he has the right combination of experience in government and law, along with a deep understanding of Kansas, to be a great attorney general for our state. I am very happy to support him.”
Schmidt, an Independence Republican, is the current state Senator majority leader.
“I’m so very pleased to have the support of Congressman Moran in this race for attorney general,” Schmidt said. “In my rural Southeast Kansas home, like in the Big First, it’s important to have strong leaders who understand the needs of rural Kansas.”
