RELEASE: Schmidt chides Kelly, invites Biden to campaign with her in Kansas
Schmidt, Florida Gov. DeSantis rally before packed house in Olathe
TOPEKA – (September 19, 2022) – Kansas Attorney General and Republican Nominee for Governor Derek Schmidt joined Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Sunday to rally a crowd of more than a thousand supporters ahead of the November 8 election. At the rally, put on by Turning Point Action, Schmidt received the endorsement of Governor DeSantis and challenged Kelly on whether she would campaign alongside President Joe Biden.
As reported by the Sunflower State Journal, one of the memorable lines of Schmidt’s remarks was inviting Biden to campaign in Kansas with Kelly:
Schmidt all but dared Biden to come to Kansas to campaign with Kelly.
“Mr. President, I’d like to invite you to come to Kansas and campaign for your loyal supporter Laura Kelly,” Schmidt said.
“I will stand side by side with Ron DeSantis and Laura will stand side by side with Joe Biden,” he said. “After all, the two of them agree about pretty much everything.
“She’s been riding shotgun on some of Biden’s worst policies,” he said.
So the question is: will Governor Kelly invite President Biden to campaign alongside her in Kansas?
