Races bring several newcomers to forefront



June 18, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Saturday morning the effects of the shortened election filing period could be seen as candidates for local, state and national races came to speak in Iola at Farm Bureau’s candidate forum.

People who might not otherwise have jumped into politics spoke about who they are and, in some cases, what they want to accomplish.

Scott Barnhart, candidate for U.S. House District 2, talked about how he was “down home folks” and his background in the region, mainly tied to the Ottawa area where multiple times he has been a candidate for Kansas House and Senate and county commission seats.
