TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - An Alma lawyer says he'll seek the Libertarian party’s nomination for governor in 2014.

Keen Umbehr filed the necessary forms Thursday.

Umbehr earned his law degree from Washburn University in 2005, when he was 46 years old. Before that, he was a trash collector who took a First Amendment dispute with Wabaunsee County officials all the way to the U.S Supreme Court, winning the case.

Now age 54, Umbehr says accountability and transparency at all levels of government will be his top priorities if elected.

He is the second Libertarian candidate to seek the nomination. Tresa McAlhaney announced her candidacy earlier in August.
