Kansas Democrats get another candidate for U.S. Senate

Her name is Lisa Johnston.

She’s an assistant dean for student academic services at Baker University, and she lives in Overland Park.

She’ll be kicking off her bid at noon Wednesday at the Hudson Auditorium at Johnson County Community College.

Sean Tevis, a 2008 Kansas State House of Representatives candidate, will introduce Johnston.

Here’s her website.

She joins Charles Schollenberger who just reported $100,000 in his campaign warchest and Patrick Coriolan, who hasn’t raised a penny, according to the Federal Election Commission.

That means there will be an Aug. 3 primary. The winner takes on Republican Todd Tiahrt or Jerry Moran.
