Derek Schmidt

Kansas Conservative for Governor

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Trusted Leader. Proven Winner. Kansas Conservative.

I’m running for Governor to bring common sense and conservative leadership to Kansas.

Meet Derek.

A native of Kansas, Derek and his family have called Kansas home since the 1860s when a young Union soldier named Peter Schmidt made his life in Southeast Kansas after the Civil War. For five generations, the Schmidts have helped build Kansas as metalworkers and farmers, teachers and miners, and small business owners. Derek believes each generation has a responsibility to leave Kansas better than they found it.

Seventy-six years ago today on a battlefield in Italy, 2nd Lt. Bob Dole sustained injuries that would leave him disabled and nearly take his life.

What followed his injury has instead been an extraordinary lifetime of continued service, sacrifice and accomplishment for Kansas, our country and the world – which he continues at age 97. Thank you for your service, Senator! You make Kansas proud.

Senator Dole was able to cross the line in the Senate and work with many people. I would like to say he was conservative but he wasn't. He never seemed to understand when you compromise on important issues you loose your base. I credit him with the beginning of the split in the KS Republican party. His run for President showed the true conservatives would not buy into his thinking and stayed home and didn't vote.

Lest We Forget all that men like him did to save the world from communism and socialism...God bless!

Bob Dole is the reason I became a Republican in the 90s when I became politically active. Unfortunately, there aren't many Bob Doles left in the Republican party. Men like you, Brownback, Marshall, Estes, and Kobach are the reason I left the Republican party. Trump and his cult-like support is why I won't return without significant changes in the party.

Yes, thank you!!!! On another note open up our schools!!!!!

God bless Bob Dole!

Slow day to find anything you can lie about democrats?

Funny! Repblicans never backed him when he asked for more and better medical care for Miltary
