Kansas Has A 16 Year Old Running For Governor

A 16-year-old from Wichita who admires Bernie Sanders wants to be governor of Kansas — and no current law on the books is standing in his way.

Jack Bergeson, a junior at The Independent School in Wichita, told the Kansas City Starthat his quest for the Democratic nomination in 2018 will be an “anti-establishment” campaign focusing on bringing a “clean slate” to Topeka.

“I’m getting in to give the people a chance,” Bergeson told the newspaper. “It doesn’t matter much if I win or lose. I’m giving people the option.”

Bergeson said he wants to bring “radical change” to health care in the state, in addition to fully legalizing medicinal marijuana and possibly recreational pot as well. At the same time, he is pro-gun rights, including the right to open carry.
