Clyde man plans to run against Huelskamp
Question of the Day
SALINA, Kan. (AP) - A Republican from Clyde is planning to run against incumbent U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, a Kansas congressman who faced no opposition in seeking re-election two years ago.
Alan LaPolice, who grew up on a dairy farm in north-central Kansas, is planning to kick off his campaign for the 1st Congressional District on Feb. 22 in Concordia, The Salina Journal reported (http://bit.ly/MECTcq ).
Huelskamp, a conservative Republican, won the seat in the strongly GOP district in 2010. He faced no opposition in seeking re-election in 2012.
Others who have said they’re running include Republican Kent Roth, an attorney in Ellinwood; independent David Joyce, an Abilene truck driver; and Democrats Jim Sherow, a history professor at Kansas State University, and Bryan Whitney, a student at Wichita State University from Syracuse. Only Whitney has officially filed as a candidate, according to the Kansas Secretary of State’s office.
LaPolice joined the Army after graduating from Clifton-Clyde High School, according to his website. After serving in the Army, LaPolice attended the University of California-Berkeley, worked as an actor and taught English in Los Angeles for 10 years before being named high school principal.
He and his family moved back to Kansas about a year ago and live in a house they bought 10 years ago.
Huelskamp’s campaign office didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment Friday.
