Greg Orman of Olathe will be joining the race for U.S. Senate for this year's general election as an independent. Orman is the co-founder of Denali Partners and creator of the Common Sense Coalition, a nonprofit group acting as an advocate for the "sensible center."

As a Kansas businessman, he hopes to focus on the dysfunction in Washington.

"Washington is broken," said Orman. "Both political parties have come to care more about themselves and their re-election than the issues of the country. If we don't start solving those problems, they will continue to head toward a downward spiral. The citizens of Kansas are a practical group and they need to elect problem solvers into the seats in order to get the big issues taken care of."

Orman means to direct his attention to the healthcare crisis in the United States.

"We have had a healthcare issue since 2008," began Orman. "Over the last five years, that crisis has only gotten worse. Both parties have been performing only for their own political advancement."

As a business owner dealing with the rise of healthcare costs, Orman believes he will be better suited to help deal with the crisis.

"As a business owner, I have been in the board room discussing the rise in healthcare costs and how it affects the raises we can give people. For many, the average raise this year is only 2.5 percent, when it could have been 4 percent. The cost of living is going up and the average wage is not."

Orman stands alone as an independent and as a business owner in the race.

"I am the only one in the race who has crated private sector jobs," explained Orman. "Having to solve various problems every day uniquely qualifies me for the position in the Senate. It is clear that Kansas wants senators that will embrace the best ideas. They want problem solvers and many running now are self-servants who are more interested in winning than in moving forward."
