Jerry Moran has filed for re-election to the U.S. Senate.
Moran filed the paperwork for his re-election campaign on Monday in Topeka, according to a media release.
Moran said in a video statement, “We don’t do this for a title. We don’t do this about a sign on the door that says U.S. Senator, rather it’s for a belief that we can and must return America to a country different and better than it is today.”
Moran will be seeking his second six-year term in the U.S. Senate. Prior to his service in the Senate, he served 14 years in the U.S. House.
He is the only Republican candidate to file so far for the Senate seat. Patrick Wiesner, a Lawrence attorney, and Monique Singh-Bey of Kansas City, Kansas have filed for the Democratic nomination.
