GOP Senate candidates to attend forum Saturday

WICHITA _ Two of the three Republican candidates in the primary race for the U.S. Senate in Kansas will take part in a forum Saturday night at the Hyatt Regency Wichita.

Rep. Todd Tiahrt, of Goddard, and Tom Little, a Mound City accountant, will attend the event, which starts at 6 p.m. and includes dinner.

Rep. Jerry Moran, of Hays, the race's third candidate, will not attend, according to his campaign office. Former Kansas Attorney General Robert Londerholm dropped out of the race earlier this week.

The two candidates will respond to questions from Craig Andres, KSNW-TV reporter and the event's moderator.

Some of the Republican candidates for the 4th congressional district will attend the event, but organizers said it hasn't been determined whether they will also take part in the forum.

Cost is $40. To make reservations, call 316-308-8426.

The forum is sponsored by the Republican Women United, Sedgwick County Republican Women, 4th District Republican Women and Kansans for Liberty Tea Party.
