INDEPENDENT, U.S. HOUSE, KANSAS (1ST DISTRICT)

Alan LaPolice is a fifth generation farmer, military veteran, and former educator, having served as a teacher, school principal and district Superintendent. He is the first Independent on the ballot in the First District in decades. He is Independent of the hyper-partisan nonsense currently destroying our government.

With policies geared to all Americans, LaPolice is well poised to win: nearly half of all Kansas voters do not currently identify with either party, and he is popular with Democrats and Republicans. He seeks to bring honor and integrity back to the Legislature. With no other Independents currently in the House, this is the opportunity to bring the credibility needed to break the gridlock and destructive partisanship in Washington.

“To be recognized and endorsed by the Centrist Project means so very much to me. This is an organization which clearly places the American People as its only special interest and the restoration of rational, representational government as its mission. It gives me great pride to be part of that same cause. They bravely seek out people to stand up and fight for what is right and to that cause, and I am a fierce ally,” said LaPolice.

Kansas is the state that nearly elected Centrist Project backed Greg Orman (Independent) to the U.S. Senate in 2014, coming closer than anyone expected to defeating longtime incumbent Pat Roberts. LaPolice is now in a two-way race to replace Tim Huelskamp, the Republican incumbent who lost in the primary, after serving as one of the most vocal members of the far-right Freedom Caucus. The Libertarian candidate suspended his campaign and endorsed LaPolice.

LaPolice received the endorsement of the Hutchinson News, the largest newspaper in the 1st District, which called him a “true outsider” and “a regular guy” with all the traits rural Kansans love. To date, four local newspapers have endorsed LaPolice.

LaPolice is a former Republican who challenged Huelskamp for his party’s nomination in 2014, earning a surprising 45 percent of the votes. He is running as an Independent citing disillusionment with the bitter and costly GOP race.
