Gordon Christensen (D), who is contemplating a run in the 4th Congressional District, made his first political foray last night in Warrensburg at a local fundraising event for the Johnson County Democratic Committee.
He spoke briefly to those in attendance, citing the needs to improve health care delivery for veterans and for access to affordable health care for all Americans. He also addressed the current dysfunction in the republican controlled Congress – calling the creation of the Planned Parenthood committee and Representative Vicky Hartzler’s (r) appointment to it nothing more than political theater.
The seat is currently held by Vicky Hartzler (r). Democrat Jim White is also running and has established a committee.
