A third teenager has decided to jump into the race to become governor of Kansas.
But even as 17-year-old Ethan Randleas of Wichita says he will join fellow high school students from Wichita and Prairie Village in the growing field, he wonders whether the state should set some sensible limits on who can run for governor.
“Maybe it’s 18 (years old), but just some way to make sure we don’t have like a dog run,” Randleas said Thursday in response to a reporter’s question. “Because I’m sure someone’s going to think about it and be like, ‘Well, you know, might be funny to have my dog run. I’m going to have my dog run for governor.’ And they’ll fork over $2,000 to get it on the primary ballot as a joke.”
“I’m not sure how to answer that,” said Bryan Caskey, director of elections at the Kansas secretary of state’s office. “Because I cannot point to a law that sets any qualifications to run for governor. So a dog has never tried to file — I don’t what would happen if one tried to. … I can’t point you to a law that says anything about the qualifications to run for governor.”
