TOPEKA, KANSAS — Republican Kansas Senator J.R. Claeys filed for re-election today to the state senate from District 24, serving Saline and Dickinson counties.

Claeys served in the Kansas House of Representatives for four two-year terms and is in the final year of his first four-year term in the Kansas Senate.

“Our way of life is worth fighting for and I won’t quit until we solve the problems that are plaguing rural Kansas,” said Claeys. “Whether it is affordable housing or training for good-paying jobs, there is more work to be done.”

Claeys received endorsements from U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, Attorney General Kris Kobach, State Treasurer Steven Johnson, Senate President Ty Masterson, and Speaker of the House Dan Hawkins.

“I appreciate the endorsements from strong conservative Republicans from across the state,” said Claeys. “But the most important endorsement is coming from the voters on Election Day and I look forward to earning their support.”
