Police, fire groups back Davis for Kansas governor

Kansas Vulnerable Brownback

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Unions representing police officers and firefighters are supporting Democratic challenger Paul Davis in the Kansas governor’s race.

The Davis campaign announced Wednesday that it had received endorsements from the Kansas Fraternal Order of Police and the Kansas State Firefighters political action committee.

Davis is seeking to unseat Republican Gov. Sam Brownback in the Nov. 4 general election.

Brownback’s campaign did not respond immediately to the endorsements for Davis.

The groups said they were supporting Davis because he has a strong record on public safety issues. Davis has served in the Kansas House since 2003 and is its minority leader.

Davis said he’s honored to have the endorsements.
