Governor Jeff Colyer has been touring the state in the days before Tuesday's primary election.
He dropped by The Well in McPherson at 5:15 p.m. on Thursday to deliver short remarks about the uniqueness of our state, economic development and to ask his supporters to help him get out the vote.
Gov. Colyer's remarks at The Well
McPherson's Mayor Tom Brown, was in attendance along with McPherson's City Police Chief Robert McClarty and Assistant Chief of Police Mikel Golden.
Colyer became governor on Jan. 31, after then-Gov. Sam Brownback resigned to take a job in the U.S. State Department. Colyer picked Salina commercial real estate businessman Tracey Mann as his lieutenant governor.
Between the two of them, Colyer and Mann intend to campaign in all 105 counties during a two-week period. The pair were in Anthony early Thursday, but they split on the campaign trail as Colyer went to Wichita while Mann made stops in Kingman and Pratt. Other stops on the itinerary Thursday included Hutchinson, Newton, Cottonwood Falls, Abilene and Hillsboro.
