Kansas 11th District Senate Incumbent Faces Conservative Challenger

Jul 31, 2012

Word came Tuesday that the Kansas Chamber of Commerce's political action committee spent more than a quarter of a million dollars on statehouse races this year supporting conservative Republicans running for state office.

Wednesday in the first half of Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with one of the recipients of that money – Kansas state Senate 11th District candidate Jeff Melcher, CEO of NetStandard, a technology company, and his moderate Republican challenger, Pat Colloton, an attorney and four-term member of the House from Leawood.

We'll ask them about state tax policy, economic development, Medicaid, and education in the Sunflower State.
