Republicans lining up teams for Kansas caucuses

Republicans are starting to fill out their teams for the approaching Kansas caucuses, set for Saturday Mar. 5.

Carly Fiorina’s campaign recently released the names of several members of her Kansas leadership, including three state representatives: Jerry Lunn, Gene Suellentrop, John Whitmer.

Thursday, the campaign for Sen. Ted Cruz will name state Rep. Mark Kahrs of Wichita as its Kansas chairman.

“Mark is a principled conservative,” Cruz plans to say in a statement.

It isn’t clear if other Republicans have formally announced leadership positions for the Kansas caucuses. We’ll update the post if more names are provided.

Eleven Republicans have registered for the caucuses, according to GOP director Clay Barker.

State Rep. Brett Hildabrand is working for Sen. Rand Paul, he said. U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo is helping Sen. Marco Rubio in the state.
