There's a lot of hype about the so-called BLUE WAVE that threatens to shape the midterms but in nearby neighborhoods we're seeing a groundswell of support for the incumbent.

Take a look at this list that we rearranged just a bit to put the metro mayors first and then other Kansas supporters after the jump . . . Checkit:

Local Mayors Announce Support for Yoder's Re-Election

Thirteen local mayors announced their support for Kevin Yoder for re-election to represent Kansas' Third District in Congress. The list spans across all three counties in the district, and quotes from each are provided below.

Carl Gerlach - Mayor of Overland Park

"I'm proud to endorse Kevin because he is such a champion for families in Kansas. From supporting billions of dollars of increased education funding to fighting for our veterans, Kevin has always had our backs in Overland Park."

Jim Randall - Mayor Pro Tem of Olathe

"Kevin knows Olathe and the Third District. He's been there for our city, our residents, our businesses, and our local charities. Smaller states like Kansas need leaders like Kevin who have strong voices in DC."

Michelle Distler - Mayor of Shawnee

David Dickey - Mayor of Mission Hills

Steve Shute - Mayor of Gardner

"Kevin is a strong conservative voice for our district in Washington. He's focused on getting the job done, growing our economy, securing our border, and supporting our troops. We've made a ton of progress on these issues over the last year and a half and we can't turn back now."

Jeff Harrington - Mayor of Bonner Springs

Rick Walker - Mayor of De Soto

"Congressman Yoder is plugged in to the needs of our community. He listens, and he works to solve problems, putting his constituents ahead of politics. He's been a great voice for us in Congress on issues that are important to our community and we should absolutely send him back to continue working on our behalf."

Marty Southard - Mayor of Louisburg

"As someone who has dedicated my life to working with children and trying to ensure they have a better future, it's so important to me that we have a voice in Congress that puts such an emphasis on education. Congressman Yoder is a nationally recognized leader for his support for schools and it's one of the many reasons Louisburg and our entire district needs him in Washington."

Donald Roberts - Mayor of Edgerton

"I am proud to endorse Kevin Yoder for US Congress. Kevin has worked hard to insure that we are well represented. He listens, then champions legislation that has a positive effect on us here in Kansas. Kevin is a leader and strong voice for Edgerton and the rest of Kansas."



  1. Keep the gravy train moving.

    The Swamp lives.

    $1 trillion annual deficits are back.

    Thanks Yoder.

    Yoder wins, the ex-wannabe cage fighter does not.

  3. Silvia Stolz8/15/18, 5:26 PM

    Yoder has been the lead sponsor of two bills that create legal loopholes for more Third Worlders to enter this country. Yoder is a cuck and only cucks support Yoder.

  4. if all politics are local, it's game over.

  5. Sidie 2020!

  6. Grow up. Davids won't be primaried by last place Sidie in 2020.

  7. Should be no surprise since the Democrat's platform is no ICE and no straws.

  8. Endorsements by these big spending political hack cronies ranks up there with a KC Star endorsement.

    A seal of approval from corrupt local officials only proves how swampy Yoder is. He's swimming, errr, skinny dipping in it.

  9. I would vote for Sharice as the chief of the Lickahoe tribe.

  10. Smoochie Smoochie Mayors!
    Is it still tasting salty from the dip in the Dead Sea?

  11. Yeah, Guys, don't act like fags!
    If you're going to kiss a butt, at least make Sharice's.

  12. As a resident of Leawood, I appreciate and support Mayor Dunn, and I respect her endorsement of Yoder. I also have a staunch Democratic friend who fully supports Yoder after his assistance to my friend’s family with a VA matter.

  13. If Yoder did his job properly, the VA would be fixed. There wouldn't be a need to research one case at a time.

    What he doing to help the thousands of other veterans? Nothing. He should have fixed the system.

    Same with immigration. He fixes two individuals status, but whimpers about our broken system that he hasn't fixed and leaves ten of thousands shit out of luck.

    Instead, he is naming post offices, errr, Quindaro township national historic status.

  14. Yoder has added $7.9 Trillion to the debt since he took office in 2011 and has approved over $1 Trillion annual deficits for years to come.

    City leaders all have their hands out while Yoder is picking up the tab with the national credit card.

    Go ahead and keep cheerleading your experienced "conservative" champion.

    1. If Yoder used his one vote to spend $7.9 trillion since 2011 why didn't Obama veto the spending? He did have that almighty pen right? Think it through a bit.

  15. I guess these mayors forgot about Yoder calling their towns dangerous after being overrun by illegals and drugs a few weeks ago on Fox & Friends.

    Yoder thinks JoCo is full of shithole towns run by MS-13.

    BTW, why did he let that happen? He just stood by and watched?

  16. yoder is imperfect and didn't personally solve the nation's problems!

    vote superman 2018!

  17. I realize this is just a suspicion, but doesn't it seem that all of the statements released by these Mayors read just like one of "Go4KC's" little speeches?

  18. Rich people slopping at the public trough!

  19. Most politicians, at all levels, are assholes. Our job is to pick the cleanest asshole. They go in poor and come out rich, or go in rich and come out much richer while claiming to be attending only to "the people's business".

    It takes a certain kind of turd to run for office.

  20. Just curious, I assume the above posters are the same group who talks about Trump glowingly and shits on the MSM? Yet, a good chunk of you are bitching about Yoder???? So, wasn't Trump supposed to drain the swamp (ie Yoder)? I assume Trump is backing Yoder. You think you voted someone 'different' in for President, yet all you have is a grifter who is far worse than any other President we've had. He's turned the office into a money maker for him and his grifter family. Continue to eat it up folks.
