TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ At least four Kansas legislators are interested in running for the 4th Congressional District seat in 2010.
That seat will be open because incumbent Republican Todd Tiahrt is running for the U.S. Senate.
State Sen. Dick Kelsey, a Goddard Republican, says he'll announce Friday whether he'll run. His event is set for 2 p.m. at the headquarters of the Wichita Independent Business Association.
He wouldn't say Monday whether he's running. But he added, ``Usually, you don't hold news conferences for no reason.''
Three other Republican lawmakers said Monday that they're interested: Sens. Susan Wagle, of Wichita, and Carolyn McGinn, of Sedgwick, and Rep. Steve Brunk, of the Wichita suburb of Bel Aire.
Also interested is Wichita businessman Mike Pompeo, who represents Kansas on the Republican National Committee.
