Former Kansas GOP Chair Endorses Morrison for AG

KC Buzz blog reports

Former state GOP chair Dennis Jones announced his endorsement today for attorney general.

He didn't go with the Republican.

In another example of the political shifting going on in Kansas this year, Jones backed Democrat Paul Morrison. One factor, Jones said in an interview, is what he views as Kline's "unbridled political ambition."

"As a lawyer, I think it's important that the office of attorney general command the respect and protect the integrity of the profession of practicing law," Jones said. "I just don't believe the incumbent attorney general has demonstrated that he has a grasp of what the attorney general is supposed to do."

Jones, the Kearny County attorney, was state GOP chair from 2003-2005. More in tomorrow's Star.
