Statement on Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s Re-election
South Carolina Attorney General and Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) Chairman Alan Wilson issued the following statement on Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s re-election victory in tonight’s General Election:
“Congratulations to my friend Attorney General Derek Schmidt on securing a second term as Kansas’ Attorney General. As Kansas’ 44th Attorney General, Schmidt has pushed back strongly against federal agencies whose unlawful overreach inhibits Kansas’ ability to govern itself. He has fought to protect Kansans by objecting to actions taken by the Environmental Protection Agency, Fish & Wildlife Service, and National Labor Relations Board and by fighting Obamacare. I congratulate General Schmidt on tonight’s victory and look forward to working alongside him for another four years.”
The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) is the only national organization whose mission is electing Republicans to the Office of Attorney General. RAGA concentrates on supporting our current attorneys general and recruiting outstanding candidates, providing them with research and financial support and assisting in message development. In doing so, RAGA is improving the talent base from which many future Governors and U.S. Senators will be drawn.
