More candidates step forward to represent Big First district map

Two new candidates are running for the US House First District, including one with a connection to the KVOE listening area.

Christy Davis, the former Symphony in the Flint Hills executive director, is running as a Democrat. Davis led the concert and related activities from 2013 until this past summer. She says she has worked for over 20 years to preserve the state's history, culture and architecture, and she plans to fight for farmers and small business owners. She is currently taking part in a listening tour that will take her to every county in the district.

Meanwhile, Republican Troy Waymaster has announced his campaign as well. Waymaster has represented Kansas House District 109 since 2012. He says he will represent conservative values, including protecting the Second Amendment and unborn and securing borders.

The race to replace Pat Roberts in the US Senate has led to a flurry of activity among both Democrats and Republicans seeking the House seat -- especially after House incumbent Roger Marshall became one of the candidates for the Senate. Republican candidates include former lieutenant governor Tracey Mann and Garden City doctor Bill Clifford. Kali Barnett, a Garden City teacher, is running on the Democrat side.
