Fired Kansas Official Ends Bid for 2nd Congressional Seat


Former Kansas Commerce Secretary Antonio Soave has ended his bid for the GOP nomination in the 2nd Congressional District of eastern Kansas.
    The announcement comes days after Republican Gov. Sam Brownback's office confirmed Soave was fired partly over questions about state contracts.
    Soave posted a statement Tuesday on his campaign's Facebook page citing family reasons for ending his campaign.
    Brownback's office said Friday that he fired Soave in June amid questions about Department of Commerce contracts for consulting and marketing services.
