Tom Holland fronting? Kansas Republicans think so
State Sen. Tom Holland announced his candidacy for Kansas governor yesterday afternoon. Not long after the Baldwin City Democrat announced his intentions, the Kansas Republican Party welcomed him to the fray with a press release that showed the Sunflower State’s GOP wasn’t taking Holland seriously.
Kansas Republican Party Executive Director Ashley McMillan said in a statement: “It makes no sense to run an Obama-Pelosi liberal candidate statewide in Kansas in 2010. More likely, today’s announcement is a precursor to the real Democratic candidate who will emerge in a few months.”
Real candidate? I called up McMillan who told me not to get too attached to Holland.
