WIBW News announced that Republican nominee for the Big 1st congressional district Roger Marshall will not have to participate in a debate with his only opponent Alan Lapolice at the Kansas State Fair. Lapolice previously ran as a Republican in the 2014 primary against Tim Huelskamp and received 45% of the vote, he is now running as an Independent. Lapolice submitted over 8,000 signatures to the Secretary of State's office to get his name on the ballot for the general election. WIBW News says Lapolice does not meet the qualifications to debate, despite receiving 45% of the vote in the 2014 primary against Tim Huelskamp, in addition to turning in nearly twice the number of signatures required for an Independent to get on the ballot in November.
Roger Marshall's recent primary win over Tim Huelskamp has been criticized for the big spending from outside DC groups like the US Chamber of Commerce, End Spending Now PAC, Club for Growth, and help from other Washington insiders like former House Speaker John Boehner himself.
When Washington comes to Kansas they bring their corrupt rule-rigging and obstruction with them. Sign the petition to tell WIBW News to stop playing Washington games and allow Alan Lapolice to debate his general election opponent Roger Marshall at the Kansas State Fair.
