Third teen en­ters race

The Courier-Mail - - WORLD -

WI­CHITA: A third teenager says he wants to be the gov­er­nor of Kansas.

Ethan Ran­dleas, 17, will con­test next year’s gu­ber­na­to­rial race to re­place in­cum­bent Gov­er­nor Sam Brown­back.

Kansas has no law gov­ern­ing the qual­i­fi­ca­tions for gov­er­nor. The Kansas City Star re­ports that Mr Ran­dleas will run as a Repub­li­can and calls him­self a “con­ser­vatar­ian”, which he says is a mix of con­ser­va­tive and lib­er­tar­ian. The other teens are Tyler Ruzich, 17, and Jack Berge­son, 16.

A can­di­date pays $US2207 to run or $US670 if they gain 5000 sig­na­tures on a sup­port­ing pe­ti­tion.
