He is Lee Jones, a 56-year-old railroad engineer from Overland Park. Jones ran unsuccessfully for the Senate in 2004.
Jones will face Greg Orman, 39, in the Democratic primary. Orman is a an Olathe resident and managing director of a private equity firm.
They're both seeking the right to challenge incumbent Republican Pat Roberts, who's seeking his third term.

Roberts had more than $2.7 million in campaign funds at the end of last year. But according to Orman's campaign, Orman raised more than $450,000 in funds in December alone.
