Wichita Chamber endorses candidates
The Wichita Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee is taking a big step … and I think they may be stepping into doo-doo. The PAC is sending out postcards promoting candidates who the PAC thinks will do more to create jobs.
Among the candidates promoted in the ads are three Republicans who are challenging fellow G-O-P Kansas Senators in the August 7th primary. The PAC is promoting businessman Gary Mason against Senator Carolyn McGinn … Wichita City Council member Michael O’Donnell against Senator Jean Schodorf … and Representative Dan Kerschen against Senator Dick Kelsey.
Apparently the Chamber wants to see more perceived conservatives in the government, as opposed to perceived moderates. I have nothing against the challengers, but it seems curious to me that the Chamber PAC would challenge three of the most effective senators representing south central Kansas … people who have stood up for business and the Chamber in the past.
Sorry, Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce … I think you got it wrong this time.
Our thought for today is from Ambrose Bierce:
“To be positive; to be mistaken at the top of one’s voice.”
