A conservative state senator wants to skip the preliminaries as long as he is not the one left out.
Steve Fitzgerald, R-Leavenworth, urged other Republicans to drop out of the race to succeed Lynn Jenkins, the Republican who is leaving the 2nd District seat from Kansas up for grabs with her retirement from Congress.
The plea from Fitzgerald on Wednesday came with an endorsement from a candidate who indeed was suspending his campaign. Matt Bevens, who lives in Topeka and works as a trader for We-star, joined Fitzgerald at a news conference designed to frame the retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel as the frontrunner among Republicans.
