In an unprecedented move, more than one hundred Republican current and former elected officials announced today their endorsement of Paul Davis for Governor and Jill Docking for Lt. Governor. The group, Republicans for Kansas Values, includes one hundred and four Republicans who served or are serving in public office – from the federal level to the local level.
