HuckabeeFormer Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee will come to Wichita Feb. 24 to support state Sen. Dick Kelsey’s congressional campaign.
The Kelsey campaign announced today that Huckabee, the top vote-getter in the 2008 Kansas GOP presidential caucus, will make a campaign appearance and raise funds for Kelsey’s bid to replace Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard.
Last year, Huckabee endorsed and taped a radio commercial for Kelsey.
In November, Huckabee held a book signing at Watermark Books in Wichita and drew long lines of supporters who waited 90 minutes or more to get his autograph.
Kelsey is running for the GOP nomination against fellow state Sen. Jean Schodorf, R-Wichita; Republican National Committeeman Mike Pompeo, oilman and football-team owner Wink Hartman and small-business owner Jim Anderson.
Democrats seeking their party’s nomination include state Rep. Raj Goyle, D-Wichita, and Robert Tillman, a retired court services officer.
The Kelsey campaign said Huckabee will speak at an open event from 9-9:45 a.m. Feb. 24 at the Holiday Inn, 549 S. Rock Road, followed by a 15-minute news conference.
