Democratic candidate for governor Paul Davis spoke with Mid Kansas Radio News Director Nick Gosnell Tuesday afternoon and outlined again the reasons why he is running for the state's top office.
Davis said, "I've been watching what has been going on for the past three and a half years here, and I just don't think that the state is heading in the right direction. I am a strong public education supporter. Both my parents are teachers, I went to public school here, and I've got a daughter who will be starting school here soon. I think that we need to have a governor that is really going to be an advocate for our public school system."
With Republicans currently controlling both houses in the Kansas Legislature, Davis was asked how he had worked across the aisle in his days as a legislator. Davis said, "I've spent twelve years in the Kansas House of Representatives, and I have a record of being able to bring Republicans and Democrats together. I've done that time and time again. We've got a lot of Republicans that are coming to support my campaign. They know I am somebody that knows how to work in a bipartisan manner, and not just with moderate Republicans. I've had a lot of success working with conservative Republicans on a number of issues."
