History of Kansas and the Kansas Republican Party
Kansas is the 34th state in the United States. It has an official nickname, The Sunflower State. Its capital is Topeka with nearly one-hundred and fifty thousand people, and its largest city is Wichita. Kansas is the leading producer of wheat in the United States. It is referred to as “The Wheat Capital of the World”. In the year 2009, they produced nine million bushels.
The Kansas Republican Party has been one of the most influential and powerful political parties in America. The Kansan GOP was established in May 1859, only two weeks after statehood to Oklahoma became a reality with Texas’ annexation as part of its “Lone Star Republic.” Over time it grew into what we know today: an integral partner among other states within our federal system, which helps shape national policies through advocacy at all levels from local town meetings up top Congress- both Senate & House
It has been active ever since and now holds control over most state politics through being able to influence legislation with all levels of government, including local counties, where they hold elections every four years on Presidential Election Day.
