Bob Dole, the former presidential candidate and majority leader of the U.S. Senate, plans a second trip to Kansas, following the three-day visit he’ll make starting Monday.
The second trip will bring him to Wichita on May 14, his Washington D.C. office said Thursday in a prepared statement.
Exact venues and times will be announced in the coming weeks, and all visits are open to the public.
On Monday, May 12 he will visit: Seneca, Marysville, Washington, Clay Center, Westmoreland and Manhattan
On Tuesday, May 13: Junction City, Abeline, Salina, McPherson and Newton
On Wednesday, May 14: Wichita, El Dorado and Emporia
On Thursday, May 15: Topeka and Wyandotte County
Dole, 90, said he plans no speeches, or to ask for money votes. In an interview this week he said he wants to thank people who supported him for his decades in Congress. He said he hopes Democrats and Independents will show up along with Republicans to meet him.
