TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas House member Clark Shultz has enlisted the help of former congressman Dick Nichols as he seeks the 2014 Republican nomination for state insurance commissioner.
Nichols has signed on as honorary chairman of the Shultz campaign. Both are from McPherson.
Shultz is chairman of the Kansas House Insurance Committee and one of four declared GOP candidates for insurance commissioner in the August 2014 primary. Incumbent Republican Sandy Praeger is not seeking a fourth term.
Nichols served in the U.S. House from 1991 to 1993. He represented the 5th Congressional District in southeast Kansas, which was eliminated after congressional reapportionment in 1992.
Also seeking the Republican nomination are Beverly Gossage of Eudora, director of a health insurance consulting company; El Dorado insurance agent David Powell; and Leawood accountant Ken Selzer.
