TOPEKA - Lynn Jenkins and Nancy Boyda campaigned today at the Statehouse and offered somewhat similar messages.
The two have less than three months before voters decide who
wins the 2nd Congressional District seat. Jenkins was joined in the House by former Rep. Jim Ryun, whom she beat Tuesday in the Republican primary. Ryun pledged to support Jenkins, and declined to say what his future holds.
Boyda held her own rally moments later, after starting the day with a similar event in Pittsburg. Both women said Congress is not working, and cast themselves as agents of change.
The 2nd District covers part or all of 26 counties in eastern Kansas. The race is expected to be competitive and draw much national attention as Republicans look to reclaim a seat they held from 1994 through 2006.
