Former Allen County Commissioner Kent Thompson was nominated Sunday afternoon to fill the Ninth District seat in the Kansas House of Representatives made vacant by the death of Ed Bideau.

“I’m humbled and flattered,” said Thompson, 49, after Jim Talkington, Allen County GOP chairman, announced Thompson had more than enough votes for the nomination, which required at least 29 votes.

Thompson’s nomination drew 37 of a possible 57 votes from precinct representatives in Allen and Neosho counties. His name will be forwarded to Gov. Sam Brownback, who will make the appointment.
