Yesterday about 125 citizen activists gathered in Topeka for Americans For Prosperity Day in Topeka. About 45 left from Wichita on a bus at 6:00 am.
The morning and early afternoon sessions included speakers such as Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins, Earl Watkins, President & CEO of Sunflower Electric Power, Ray Merrick, Kansas House Majority Leader, Dr. Art Hall, Executive Director of the Center for Applied Economics at the University of Kansas, and Senator Tim Huelskamp.
The afternoon rally in on the capitol’s south lawn started just as the rain did. (Click here for photos, or here for an automatic sideshow.) The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the protesters. Even Jason Croucher of the Kansas Jackass blog attended.
