Kansas Treasurer Jake LaTurner is ending his campaign for the U.S. Senate and will instead launch a primary challenge against Republican Congressman Steve Watkins.
LaTurner said hes switching his efforts to run for the 2nd District, arguing that Watkins isnt running a good campaign and it could cost the Republican Party the seat.
Second District residents deserve a solid conservative fighter they can count on, LaTurner said in a news release, adding later, We must nominate a Republican that can win the general election and fight for our principles.
