Former Kansas Sen. Bob Dole has made his pick for president. “I have determined that Jeb Bush is the most qualified. Jeb has the proven leadership skills and executive experience needed to fix the problems facing our country – from the anemic economy to America’s weakened standing among world leaders,” Dole said in a Wednesday statement. The 1996 Republican presidential nominee also told NBC that while he prefers somebody with experience, he thinks “there are a lot of good candidates – I like nearly all of them. Except (Ted) Cruz.” Last week Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, endorsed Marco Rubio. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, supports Carly Fiorina. – Rhonda Holman
