Now that incumbent Roger Marshall has announced he will run for US Senate instead of his current seat in the US House, one Republican was quick to announce his candidacy for Marshall's current position representing the First Congressional District.


Former lieutenant governor Tracey Mann announced his run for the office two days after Marshall announced he will run for the Senate seat opening up when Pat Roberts retires at the end of his term next year. Mann, who was Jeff Colyer's right-hand man, says he plans to try to restore sound fiscal and agricultural policy if elected.

Unlike the Senate race, which has seen a lot of speculation about potential candidates and some well-known political figures already announce their intent to run, the race for the so-called Big First District has been much more quiet so far. To this point, no candidates have filed their paperwork with the Kansas Secretary of State's Office and the only announced candidate is Democrat Kali Barnett.
