PARSONS — Southeast Kansas’s GOP faithful poured into the Parsons Municipal Auditorium on Saturday for a forum featuring four of the top Republican candidates for governor.

Current front-runners, incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, appeared alongside former state Sen. Jim Barnett and Insurance Commissioner Ken Selzer.

Johnson County-based minister-salesman, Patrick Kucera, who calls himself the “Entrepreneurial Evangelist” and who says he wants to “put God back into the equation of making money,” was slated to participate but never appeared.
