Senate Vice President Rick Wilborn Endorses Derek Schmidt

Rick Wilborn from McPherson here. I’m the Vice President of the Kansas State Senate, and I’m writing to you today to announce my whole-hearted endorsement of Derek Schmidt to be our next Governor of Kansas– I hope I can count on you joining me in supporting Derek. 

I’ve known Derek since before I began serving in the Kansas Legislature. For as long as I’ve known him, he’s always been a reliable leader who will get the job done for Kansas families. 

This is an important election coming up, and we need fresh new leadership in the governor’s office to get our state back on track. Derek is the person for the job.

Derek is a great conservative and a true winner at every turn. I know he has what it takes to defeat Laura Kelly, and we can’t afford to risk another loss like 2018. Throughout his entire career, he’s never backed down from a tough fight.

This year, Derek was invaluable in helping us pass the most important pro-life legislation in recent memory in the Value Them Both amendment. Over the years as attorney general, he’s returned millions of dollars to Kansas consumers by winning in the courts and he’s kept our communities safe by always backing the blue and enforcing our criminal laws to the fullest extent. When Derek makes a promise, he keeps it.

As Senate Vice President, I know how badly we need better leadership in the governor’s office. As a longtime friend, I know Derek will stick to his word and get things done for our state. I hope you’ll join me in choosing Derek Schmidt as our nominee to defeat Laura Kelly in 2022.

Thanks for supporting Derek’s campaign. This is going to be a tough fight, but we’re lucky to have patriots like you supporting the effort to get him elected.
