KFB defends Moran

Kansas Farm Bureau’s top officials are stepping back into the political arena for the organization’s Senate candidate, Jerry Moran. In response to Tiahrt’s multiple character attacks, KFB president Steve Baccus and former president Doyle Rahjes released a statement defending Moran and his character.

“As leaders of Kansas’ agricultural community, we know Jerry Moran well, we consider him a friend, a partner in helping Kansas’ farmers, and we strongly support his candidacy for the Senate.We know his character, his roots and his values. Kansans have known Jerry and his family his whole life, and we know that the recent character assassinations on one of our own aren’t credible, and these are nothing more than baseless political accusations.”

Rahjes goes on to re-point out an attack the Moran campaign has been using for days, that Tiahrt opposed independent congressional ethics oversight and labels Tiahrt’s attacks baseless and false.

KFB endorsed Moran in April and has kept relatively quiet since then. Now it seems they are stepping into the ring to defend the guy they want to send back to Washington.


About Katie Stockstill-Sawyer

I am a city girl that is learning about life on the farm. I met and married a fourth-generation farmer, Derek. I am now a farmer's wife and country girl. The move has required a few changes and a lot of learning. But I wouldn't change my new life and all of the little lessons and surprises it provides.


One thought on “KFB defends Moran

  1. Anyone who knows Jerry knows threats and dirt-mongering aren’t his style.
    I can imagine, however, that tempers may wear thin for Moran’s campaign staff, with constantly trying to deal with Tiahrt’s dirt.
    As far as I’m concerned, Tiahrt will be forever unelectable in Kansas after losing next Tuesday and his campaign manager will have to find a new career, because who would ever want that person to run their campaign after this performance? Pitiful.
