December 1989

TOPEKA (AP) — Sen. Robert Talkington became the first Senate president from southeast Kansas in more than 35 years as he edged out incumbent Ross Doyen in secret balloting at the Republican caucus. In an interview with the  Register, Sen. Talkington said he thought he offered all 40 senators and the state an attitude of cooperation that would result in progressive legislation. “I look forward to bringing all senators together to provide for the needs of the state,” he said.
