Speaker of the House Ron Ryckman Endorses Derek Schmidt

By: Ron Ryckman

I’m Ron Ryckman, Speaker of the Kansas House of Representatives.

This year, Republicans in our state’s legislature have accomplished many significant wins for Kansas families… But we could have done so much more without Governor Kelly vetoing commonsense policies and obstructing good legislation every opportunity that she got. This has to change. 

That’s why I’m committed to electing a strong Republican governor in 2022, and it’s why I’m proud to endorse Derek Schmidt’s campaign to lead our state. 

No one is better qualified or more committed than Derek is, and I’m going to work hard to make sure he gets elected. 

He is unwavering in his commitment to pro-life values, Second Amendment freedoms, and the America First agenda. He is the leader we need for our families, for our businesses, and for our future. 

As Speaker of the House for the past five years, I’ve worked closely with every single major candidate for governor. To me, the choice is crystal clear: Derek Schmidt is the best possible choice to bring strong leadership and real Kansas values back to Topeka.

As our attorney general, Derek has always been a trusted conservative leader for Kansas. He has stood strong against the overreach of the Obama Administration, the Biden Administration, and the Kelly Administration.

Both publicly and privately, Derek has been a reliable conservative voice who listens and gets things done in state government. I know that he has the values and the backbone to stand up for what’s right.

It’s time to turn the page on the disappointments of the past few years and for Republicans to move forward together so we can take the veto pen away from Laura Kelly. 

Thank you for joining me in coming together to support Derek Schmidt for governor.
