Former Congresswoman Denies Davis Endorsement

KANSAS CITY -- Former Republican congresswoman Jan Meyers says she never endorsed Democratic challenger Paul Davis in the Kansas governor's race despite being included on a list of GOP endorsements for him.

The Kansas City Star reports that Meyers said that she would never publicly endorse a Democratic challenger over a sitting Republican governor.

Davis announced earlier this week that more than 100 former and current GOP officials had endorsed him through a new group called Republicans for Kansas Values. Meyers' name was one of the most prominent on the list.

Meyers said she joined the group because she's a GOP moderate, but she said she didn't endorse Davis. She said there must have been some miscommunication.

Meyers represented the Kansas City-area 3rd District from 1985 to 1997.
