GOP House Leaders: ‘Democrats Destroying Nation’ Amid Amanda Adkins Endorsement

Here's a bombastic claim in support of a Kansas congressional campaign that's getting increasingly aggressive . . .


Overland Park, KS – Today, Amanda Adkins earned endorsements from Republican Congressional Leadership in her bid to defeat Democrat Sharice Davids.

“Democrats are destroying the nation, and there is a lot at stake for Kansans," House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) said. “I am proud to join the Kansas Republican delegation and endorse Amanda Adkins because her focus on improving healthcare outcomes, ensuring our national security remains a priority and revitalizing our economy is exactly what we need to get the nation back on track and make government work for the people of Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District. Her vision, tenacity and leadership ability are critical to build a stronger, more diverse, and effective House Republican conference. Amanda is one of the top Republicans we need to take back the House, and I look forward to working with Amanda to make America stronger.”

“We need more experienced leaders like Amanda Adkins who will put their constituents first,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (LA01) said.  “With her background in service to the community, in business leadership, and as a mom – there is no question Amanda Adkins is the person for the job.”

“I am so honored to earn this support from national leaders and I will work hard every single day to faithfully serve the people in KS-03 by getting our economy back on track starting with reducing inflation and spending, ensuring security and good foreign policy, and addressing the healthcare crisis facing this nation,” said Adkins.

Amanda Adkins won the Republican primary handily and outperformed the top of the ticket in Johnson County in the 2020 elections. Adkins recently launched her campaign for the 2022 election cycle with the support and encouragement of the former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his wife Susan Pompeo, as well as numerous members of congress including Kansas Reps. Estes, Mann and LaTurner.

Amanda is a businesswoman, mother, and social entrepreneur. For the past 15 years, she worked as an executive at Cerner Corporation, a global Kansas City based healthcare and information technology company.

Professionally Amanda has advised providers and employers across the United States on how to cut healthcare costs and improve health outcomes for individuals and families. In the course of this work, she has been a leader for consideration of social determinants of health in communities (SDOH). A belief in the importance of SDOH was a major consideration when she founded Systems of Care Initiative (SOCI), a philanthropic organization dedicated to helping young children be healthy and ready for kindergarten and later success in life.

Amanda is the former chairwoman of the Kansas Republican Party, where she achieved unprecedented election success while serving two terms from 2009-2013. Amanda led a “Clean Sweep” in the 2010 election cycle winning all Federal and statewide races and increasing majorities in the legislature.  Her tenure in politics is marked by promotion of women in leadership positions. Adkins is co-founder of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Excellence in Public Service Series whose mission is to prepare Republican women to seek greater involvement in leadership, government, and politics.
