Democrat in Kansas 1st having event with lawmakers
Topeka The Democratic nominee in the 1st Congressional District of Kansas is preparing to have a Statehouse news conference with former and current state legislators.
Democrat Jim Sherow's event Tuesday is outside his central and western Kansas district, which covers more than 60 counties.
His campaign did not provide details in advance of the announcement.
Sherow is a Kansas State University history professor and a former Manhattan mayor. He hopes to unseat conservative Republican congressman Tim Huelskamp in the Nov. 4 election.
Huelskamp is a former state senator who is seeking his third, two-year term in the House.
Huelskamp is favored to win, despite a tougher-than-expected primary race. Fifty-three percent of the district's voters are registered Republicans and 19 percent are Democrats.
