During his 17 years in the legislature, Clark is proud to have earned a 100% pro-life voting record and helped pass key anti-abortion legislation that said abortions will no longer be considered a “medical procedure” for insurance purposes.

Clark is a champion for the 2nd Amendment, having received the Legislator of the Year award from the Kansas State Rifle Association and a coveted “A” rating from the NRA.

Clark has served as Chair of the House Insurance Committee for 9 years and has been active in both the National Conference of Insurance Legislators and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

He was also able to serve as a key supporter of many pro-consumer pieces of legislation including the Health Care Freedom Act and a bill ensuring families of fallen police officers and firefighters will be able to continue on their health insurance plan.

Clark Shultz also serves as Chairman of the House rules committee on which I also serve. Clark has recently received 100% ratings from the National Federation of Independent Business and was name a pro-jobs legislator by the Kansas Chamber of Commerce.

Outside of the legislature, Clark worked to protect consumers across Kansas as a compliance auditor for a national title insurance underwriter for over a decade.

Shultz is currently president of a title company in Wichita. He and his wife Lori have six children and live in Lindsborg in rural McPherson county.

Clark Shultz has been endorsed by over 40 state legislators including most of the western Kansas delegation. All of the northwest and north central Kansas legislators have endorsed Senator Shultz including Senator Ralph Ostmeyer, Senator Elaine Bowers, Representative Ward Cassidy, Representative Don Hineman, Representative Troy Waymaster, and many others.

Clark has been endorsed by Big First Congressman Tim Huelskamp who served with Clark in the state legislature. Congressman Huelskamp said, “Clark Shultz is a strong conservative candidate for Insurance Commissioner. Clark has extensive experience in the insurance industry and is the best candidate to steer us through the disastrous harm that ObamaCare has caused our healthcare system in Kansas.”

Clark is a respected leader and deserves our support in the August 5th Republican primary for Insurance Commissioner. That definitely separates him from the rest of the candidates. We need to support candidates who live our rural way of life. Please join me in voting for Clark Shultz for Insurance Commissioner on August 5th.
