What a debate! Well done, @KansasStateFair!

We're proud to support @gregorman, not only the Independent choice, but the best choice to lead ALL OF KANSAS into the future.

And thank you to everyone from #teamorman!

ICYMI: Our recap ⬇️ #ormanforkansas #ksgov #ksleg
To open, Greg lamented the two decades of decline that has occurred at the hands of Republican AND Democratic administrations:

"Kansas used to be a leader—a place that other states looked to for inspiration. But now we're a cautionary tale, and both parties are to blame."
With 27 years of experience turning businesses around while giving employees the confidence and stability they need to build their best lives, Greg is ready to do the same for Kansas.
Greg knows we are not going to recover overnight, but he is the only candidate who is offering a proactive economic development strategy, one that isn't limited to canned party lines about the budget and simply lowering or raising taxes.
Greg's experience in the private sector puts him in prime position to leverage our strengths as a state–and that starts with developing the workforce and ensuring that Kansans are equipped with the skills employers are hiring for.
Education is a top priority:

Greg and @johndoll22 want local communities, boards and educators to be able to focus on their jobs—increasing student performance and closing achievement gaps–rather than on the constant fear of funding cuts or how to create an eleventh-hour budget.
Again, Greg is the only candidate who is offering a PROACTIVE economic development strategy.

He knows and fully appreciates the governor's responsibility to spend every hard-earned tax dollar that the people of Kansas entrusts him with wisely.
Greg will do everything in his power to help our agriculture sector thrive.

Industrial hemp uses half the water of wheat, producing significantly more profit per acre, and has thousands of uses including the production of paper, textiles, and construction materials.
Greg knows there isn't a silver bullet to solve crime.

He will start by supporting our law enforcement and addressing mental health in Kansas, which has one of the highest rates of mental health issues in the country.
To qualify for KanCare, you need to earn under 38% of the poverty line.

That isn't right.

Greg will expand Medicaid in a responsible way, in a way that doesn’t require us to spend money, and in a way that grows our workforce and addresses the issues of our rural communities.
International tariffs impact Kansas.

Our country's current strategy could disrupt trade today and for a long time in the future. As easy as it is to break those supply chains, once broken, they are extremely difficult to rebuild. And that hurts our farmers.
The Brownback tax plan was a disaster, and @KDOTHQ bore the brunt of cuts, affecting our ability to leverage our geographic strength and impacting our ability to grow the economy.
Greg has said it before and he said it again—this is a humanitarian issue.

We shouldn't have people at their most vulnerable feeling like criminals.

And the solution is not complicated: legalize #medicalcannabis.
A moment of agreement on stage when talking about Ogallala Aquifer—the lifeblood of western Kansas.
EVERY citizen deserves the opportunity to be fairly represented by their government—under current leadership, that isn't the case:
Once more, Senator Kelly ironically presented herself of the gun sense candidate...
At the close, Greg posed the question: "More of the same?"

No thank you.
As with the first gubernatorial debate, this one told us what we've known for awhile now: there really is no debate at all—@GregOrman is the best candidate to drive Kansas forward and provide ALL Kansans with the opportunity to build a better life. #ormanforkansas #ksgov #ksleg
