Democrat announces run for U.S. Senate

SchollenbergerTOPEKA – Democrats have a candidate for the U.S. Senate.

Long-time Kansas resident Charles Schollenberger, 57, of Prairie Village jumped in this morning.

Schollenberger said he made his decision after touring Kansas for six months meeting and speaking with hundreds of Kansas Democrats.

“Everywhere we went people have been friendly and supportive and have welcomed our efforts,” Schollenberger said. “I believe that Kansas Democrats are looking for leadership from a candidate who is not afraid to get out among the people and wage a grass-roots campaign.”

Schollenberger made his announcement in the park across the street from the famous Monroe Elementary School in Topeka, which now houses the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site.
