SAM Endorses Greg Orman for Kansas Governor

New Party Endorses Independent’s Bid in Sunflower State

August 28, 2018

SAM announces its support and endorsement of Greg Orman in his campaign for Kansas governor this fall.

“Greg Orman has been a steadfast leader in the independent movement in this country and in Kansas,” said SAM Chief Strategist Reed Galen. “He has the best opportunity to bring common-sense governance back to Kansas this fall.”

Orman has qualified for the November ballot after turning in 10,000 signatures on behalf of his independent effort.

Recent polling has shown that Orman would beat Republican nominee Kris Kobach by double-digits. SAM’s goals for 2018 and beyond include:

  • Obtaining ballot access in states across the country
  • Advocating for and supporting electoral reform measures across the country, including ballot measures that
    • End Partisan Gerrymandering
    • Repeal of “Sore Loser” Laws
    • Reform and Strengthen Campaign Finance Disclosure
    • Give Voters More General Election Choices
    • Expand Voter Registration and Voter Access
    • Remove Unnecessarily High Barriers to Ballot Access by Independents and New Parties
    • Implement “Top” Four Primaries Utilizing Ranked-Choice Voting
  • Recruiting and supporting candidates for political office who put people before party and are dedicated to finding objectives-based solutions to the country’s biggest problems.

“Pioneers like Greg Orman give SAM, our leaders and members hope and optimism that breaking the stranglehold of the two-party monopoly is possible,” Galen said. “Americans are looking for new and better ways to participate in the political process. SAM’s support of candidates like Greg Orman is a key component of that work.”

SAM is a 527-organization based in Denver, Colorado. Our goal is to build a new political party for a new American majority.
