Kansas independent Senate candidate moves closer to November ballot

Kansas Senate candidate Greg Orman continues to push the ball down the field.

The Johnson County businessman expects to turn in 10,000 petition signatures today to the Secretary of State’s office in Topeka. If 5,000 of the signees are certified, Orman goes on the November ballot as an independent.

The certification process could take some time.

Orman has far outraised the Democrat in the Senate race, Chad Taylor. As of mid-July, Orman had $362,592 available for his effort; Taylor had just $10,626 at the end of June.

He’s on TV locally.

So Orman’s candidacy is credible. He faces big hurdles, of course — he won’t have any built-in party infrastructure. But his fundraising and petition-gathering efforts suggest his candidacy can’t be ignored, no matter who the Republicans nominate next week.
