Kansas Guv Kelly Launches PAC

Everybody wants to play kingmaker . .  Here's the Kansas politico imagining continued influence after her 2nd term is complete . . . Check-it . . .

“I’ve always been middle of the road,” Kelly said. “That’s how I’ve governed — by bringing Democrats and Republicans together to meet in the middle.

This PAC will support Kansas leaders who put politics aside and work with me to deliver policies that help families thrive.”
