Topeka, KS Former Kansas Bureau of Investigations (KBI) Director Bob Blecha, Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter, former Johnson County Sheriff Frank Denning, and Phillips County Sheriff Charles Radabaugh today endorsed Republican candidate for Kansas Attorney General, Tony Mattivi.

Endorsees had this to say of Mattivi’s candidacy:

“Kansas needs an Attorney General like Tony Mattivi. With his experience handling high profile cases like the Garden City domestic terror threat and the bombing of the USS Cole, as well as taking down drug cartels and traffickers, he has the know-how to keep our state safe and put criminals behind bars. I have no doubt that Tony will stand up for our families and our constitutional rights in the court room and beyond. I am proud to endorse Tony for our next Attorney General of Kansas,” Blecha said.

“It is critical that we elect an experienced prosecutor to run the Attorney General’s office. Not only has Tony worked in the AG’s office prosecuting cases in Kansas, but he has prosecuted terrorists on the world stage,” said Sheriff Easter. “We have worked with Tony for many years and know him to be the best candidate for this important position in our state.”

Sheriff Denning said, “It’s no doubt that Tony is the best person for this job. His extensive career working with law enforcement to put criminals behind bars and keep our communities safe is just what our state needs in an Attorney General. I believe Tony will fight for the rights of all Kansans both in and out of the courtroom and will help make our state safe again.”

“Tony has consistently put our state and our country first in his career. He’s taken on criminals ranging from terrorists to murderers to drug cartels to protect our families and our freedoms. Tony is the only candidate in this race that has a complete grasp of what it means to be Attorney General,” said Sheriff Radabaugh. “I know that Tony will protect our Constitution and back our men and women in blue, and for that, I am glad to endorse him.”

“I am proud to have the support of former KBI Director Bob Blecha, and Sheriffs Easter, Radabaugh, and Denning. These men have served our state with integrity and honor, and I am grateful that they have put their trust in me to do right by Kansas and our nation’s Constitution as the next Attorney General,” said Mattivi.
