TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Republican group wants a Kansas state representative to apologize for characterizing GOP politicians supporting a Democratic candidate as "nursing home'' residents.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Paul Davis announced earlier through Republicans for Kansas Values that dozens of former and current GOP officials endorsed him rather than likely GOP nominee Gov. Sam Brownback in the 2014 election.

Republicans for Kansas Values wants an apology from Republican State Rep. J.R. Claeys, who posted a comment on Twitter saying the organization had "really raided the nursing home'' to find Republican Davis supporters.


Claeys said Thursday, however, the Davis campaign owes "Kansans an apology'' for listing Brownback supporters who didn't actually support Davis. On Thursday, former Congresswoman Jan Meyers, who was listed as supporting Davis, said she supports Brownback.
