President Donald Trump is coming from the nation’s capital to the Capital City.
“We’re thrilled to welcome President Trump to the Sunflower State!” GOP chairman Kelly Arnold said in response to the announcement.
President Trump will host a rally at the Kansas Expocentre at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 6, according to the President’s campaign website.
His visit will be exactly one month before Kansans head to the ballot box to pick their next state leaders and House representatives. Republican gubernatorial candidate Sec. of State Kris Kobach and 2nd district nominee Steve Watkins have both released statements welcoming the Commander-in-Chief.
“I’m honored and grateful that President Trump will be coming to Kansas on Oct. 6. President Trump’s success in cutting taxes at the national level unleashed economic growth, and I want to accomplish the same thing in Kansas by reducing our crushing tax burden,” Sec. of State Kris Kobach said.
Watkins called an opportunity to welcome a president to your hometown “a true honor” no matter what one’s politics are.
“President Trump recognizes that this upcoming election and the race for the Second District of Kansas, in particular, is critical to the future of our nation and the Great State of Kansas,” he said.
“The President knows Kris Kobach and Steve Watkins will lead Kansas in the right direction.” Arnold added.
On Nov. 6, Kobach will face Democratic candidate state Sen. Laura Kelly, Libertarian Jeff Caldwell, and independents Greg Orman and Rick Kloos.
Watkins will square off against Democrat Paul Davis and Libertarian Kelly Standley.
