KNEA endorses Holland for governor

July 16, 2010

The Kansas National Education Association has endorsed Tom Holland for governor.

Holland, a Democrat, will likely face Republican Sam Brownback in the November general election.

“I’m glad to see both Republicans and Democrats on the list of KNEA endorsed candidates,” said Holland, who is a state senator from Baldwin City. “We need bipartisan solutions to the challenges facing Kansas,” he said.

“As governor, I will continue to work with Republicans, Independents and Democrats so that every Kansas child receives a quality public education,” he said.

In a statement, the KNEA said it supported Holland and his lieutenant governor running mate, Kelly Kultala, because they work across party lines to solve problems.
