SHAWNEE – Three top Kansas Republicans – two former members of the Republican National Committee and a former State Party Chairman – are speaking out today in support of independent businessman Greg Orman’s quest for the United States Senate.
They are: State Senator Alicia Salisbury of Topeka who was a Republican National Committeewoman from 2004-2008; Dennis Jones, formerly of Lakin and currently from Topeka, who was Republican State Party Chairman from 2003–2004; and State Representative Stephen Cloud of Lenexa who was Republican National Committeeman from 2002-2008.
Salisbury said, “Greg Orman is a breath of fresh air. Whether the GOP takes control of the Senate this November, President Obama will still be holding the veto pen. Gridlock may have worked in the past, but it will do nothing in the next two years to address our nation’s budget deficit and other issues that concern Kansans.”
Said Jones: “Washington is broken and to fix it we need someone who has experience in the real world solving problems. As a successful businessman, Greg Orman knows how to work with people to solve problems, and that’s why he has my support.”
"Senator Roberts is too much a part of the broken system In Washington to be able to represent all Kansans," said Cloud. "He has moved too far to the right. Greg Orman will listen to all of the people of Kansas and will work hard to represent us."
Salisbury, Jones and Cloud are among a group of more than 70 Republican former elected officials who have endorsed Orman’s Senate bid because – like Greg Orman – they believe that Washington is broken, and that we need people like Greg Orman working in Washington to help solve our country’s problems.
Earlier this week, the Orman campaign released an ad featuring Republican Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger endorsing Orman and calling him a “fresh face” who will “represent the best interests of Kansas.”
“I am proud to have earned the endorsement of these great Kansans who have put party labels aside to endorse our independent campaign for Senate,” Orman said. “Our campaign for senate is drawing people from all political parties because they know that Washington is broken and we’ve got to focus on solving problems.”
