Targeted incumbents

Kansas Chamber of Commerce

The Kansas Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee has targeted eight Republican incumbents for defeat, donating $1,000 and making in-kind contributions to eight Republican challengers. It sees the eight incumbents as being impediments to private sector job creation.

Chamber Political Action Chairman Ivan Crossland stated, “Bloated state budgets, increased taxes and growing union and trial lawyer support are not the ingredients for private sector job creation. The candidates we have chosen to support are willing to do what it takes to turn things around in Kansas.”[1]

The eight targeted Republican incumbents are:
