SALINA, Kan. (AP)-- A Clyde resident says he plans to run as a Republican against incumbent Congressman Tim Huelskamp.
The Salina Journal reports that Alan LaPolice, who grew up on a dairy farm in north-central Kansas, plans to kick off his campaign for the 1st Congressional District on Feb. 22 in Concordia.
Huelskamp, also a Republican, won the seat in the strongly GOP U.S. House district in 2010 and faced no opposition in seeking re-election in 2012.
Other potential candidates include Republican Kent Roth, an attorney in Ellinwood; independent David Joyce, an Abilene truck driver; and Democrats Jim Sherow, a history professor at Kansas State University, and Bryan Whitney, a student at Wichita State University from Syracuse.
The Kansas Secretary of State's office says only Whitney has officially filed as a candidate.
