TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback's former budget director is supporting a fellow certified public accountant in the insurance commissioner's race.

Republican candidate Ken Selzer of Leawood announced Thursday that he's received the endorsement of former Budget Director Steve Anderson and that Anderson is joining his campaign's steering committee.

Anderson stepped down as budget director last month for family reasons.

In the August 2014 Republican primary, Selzer faces Kansas House Insurance Committee Chairman Clark Shultz of McPherson, health insurance consultant Beverly Gossage of Eudora and insurance agent David Powell of El Dorado.

No Democrat has publicly announced plans to run. Three-term Republican incumbent Sandy Praeger does not plan to seek re-election.

Gossage has been endorsed by ex-U.S. House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and six Kansas House members.
