Senate Candidate Greg Orman Makes Stop In Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - U.S. Senate candidate Greg Orman made a stop in Topeka as part of his eight-day, 18-stop "Problem Solving Tour".

Orman, an Independent candidate, volunteered at a battered women's shelter Monday.

The media was not allowed in, but 13 News caught up with him afterward as he grabbed lunch and met people at Mr. Goodcents.

On Monday, he released a four-point reform plan that includes enacting term limits, ending congressional pensions, banning lobbying by former congress members, and eliminating so-call political action committees.

Orman says he's uniquely positioned to achieve those goals.

"We have two parties who are more interested in seeing the other fail than moving the country forward," said Orman. "So I'm running as an Independent which means you can elect someone who can go to Washington and take the best ideas, wherever they come from, to move our country forward."

Orman also planned to visit a school-supply drive at City Park in Manhattan Monday night.
