MainPAC has a long and proud history of backing candidates on both sides of the aisle who support strong public education free of special interests, fiscally responsible policies that balance revenue strategies, and good government free from partisan machinations and religious doctrine.

These are the 2017 Primary Election recommendations of MainPAC, the political action committee of the MainStream Coalition, for candidate races in Johnson, Wyandotte, and Douglas counties in Kansas. They are arrived at through candidate surveys, interviews, and voting records where applicable, to determine how they align with the moderate values of most Kansans.

Primaries bring out the most ardent supporters of extremist candidates. Have your say in rejecting their policies. Be sure to vote. 

A note about the races and candidates listed: These are recommendations for races where there is a contested primary on August 1st, 2017. If your city or candidate is not listed, there may not be a primary contest. In cases where no recommendation has been made, it may be because candidates did not return our survey, or did not meet criteria for recommendation.

These are primary election recommendations. General election recommendations may change.
