Phill Kline will seek a full term as Johnson County District Attorney.
Kline will be able to continue his battle against the Planned Parenthood clinic in Overland Park if he is re-elected.
Kline, an anti-abortion Republican, filed criminal charges against the clinic after being appointed to fill the vacancy created when Paul Morrison defeated him in the Attorney General's race.
Johnson County Republican leaders chose Kline as the replacement in December 2006. Kline took over in January 2007.
