More often than not, Republican incumbents in Johnson County are skipping what was once a mainstay of campaign season – the candidate forum.
I’m not talking about one or two no-shows. I’m saying the League of Women Voters invited every candidate in a contested primary to participate in a political meet and greet in June, but not one of 14 Republican incumbents showed up.
Their challengers did, but they didn’t.
Which begs the question: where are current lawmakers campaigning?
