Vote Dr. Marshall

Dear Editor,
On Aug. 2, Kansans in the Big First will have the opportunity to regain leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives by voting for Dr. Roger Marshall. For nearly four years, Kansans have lacked a voice on the House Agriculture Committee and Dr. Marshall, if elected, will regain our voice. The incumbent, Congressman Tim Huelskamp, claims he was removed by former Speaker John Boehner as political retribution. Unfortunately, that likely wasn’t the case. Removal of a member from a committee usually is done at the behest of the committee chairman in consultation with the party steering committee. When Congressman Huelskamp was removed from the agriculture committee, he also was removed from the budget committee. The chairman at that time current Speaker Paul Ryan. In a recent interview with Politico, a current member of the steering committee said Congressman Huelskamp would still have zero chance of getting back on Ag, and that he had burned more bridges than J.E.B. Stuart. While anything is possible in Washington, DC, the facts demonstrate it is unlikely Congressman Huelskamp will regain his seat. Kansans cannot afford another two years without effective representation. Please vote for Dr. Roger Marshall Aug. 2.
