TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Rep. Todd Tiahrt plans to announce Saturday
what his political plans are for 2010.

But signs already are pointing to a run for the U.S. Senate.

Tiahrt's campaign said Thursday that he will announce his plans
at 11 a.m. Saturday. The event is at a Topeka hotel where fellow
Republicans are gathering for an annual meeting.

Tiahrt said in November that he was making ``very serious'' preparations for a Senate race. He also formed a campaign steering
committee this week.

The Goddard Republican has represented the 4th District of
south-central Kansas since 1995.

In the Republican primary in August 2010, Tiahrt would face Rep.
Jerry Moran, of Hays.

Moran represents the 1st District of western Kansas, and he
filed paperwork Thursday with the Kansas secretary of state's
office.
