Lt. Gov. Jeff Co­ly­er (R) said in an in­ter­view at CPAC Thursday that he’s open to run­ning for gov­ernor in 2018.

Co­ly­er: “I have the coolest job in North Amer­ica. I love my state. I’m a fifth gen­er­a­tion Kansan, so it’s in your blood. I be­lieve in ser­vice, and I think there are lots of ways to serve. … My main goal is, let’s get things done, then we’ll fig­ure out what I’m do­ing.”

Co­ly­er, when asked about run­ning for gov­ernor.” I’d con­sider any­thing. … For me, I’m fo­cused on get­ting my job done, and right now, you know, we’ve got some big is­sues, and we’re go­ing to deal with them.” (Hot­line re­port­ing)

HELP US PAUL DAV­IS. YOU’RE OUR ONLY HOPE. “Demo­crats’ stra­tegic plan sets an am­bi­tious goal of cap­tur­ing the gov­ernor’s of­fice, two con­gres­sion­al seats and a ma­jor­ity in the Kan­sas House by 2020.” Former state House Minor­ity Lead­er Paul Dav­is (D) “is seen as a top pro­spect to achieve two of those goals.”

“Kerry Gooch, the state party’s ex­ec­ut­ive dir­ect­or, ac­know­ledged that one reas­on for that is that Dav­is is one of the only Demo­crats with statewide name re­cog­ni­tion.” (Kan­sas City Star)
