State Senator Laura Kelly has announced she's running against Lynn Jenkins for the Kansas 2nd Congressional District.

"In the last few months people from all across the district have been urging me to run for Congress," Kelly said in a prepared statement.

"They are tired of leaders tied to a do-or-die narrow partisan agenda that has failed our country for the last eight years. Saying NO is not enough in these challenging times. People deserve common sense answers and real solutions," she said."

Lynn Jenkins you might remember was the Congresswoman who was seeking a Great White Hope to run against Barack Obama....

I'm looking for a direct place you can contribute, get involved, etc.. but thus far all I know is you can add her on Facebook

UPDATE:

Kelly now has an ActBlue page up so contributions go directly to her
Facebook Fan Page
and she's tweeting right now!  even followed me back and said thanks!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
