It’s officially a race.
Democrat Tom Wiggans filed paperwork with the state today to begin a campaign for Kansas Governor.
The political newcomer faces U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, a Republican, in next year’s election.
Wiggans still hasn’t spoken out about his interest in running for governor, but today a spokeswoman emailed this statement:
“Now more than ever as our state and our families deal with this difficult economic climate, we need a successful business leader in the Governor’s office.
