Gov. Jeff Colyer will announce his choice for lieutenant governor Tuesday night, according to a news release from his office.

The announcement will be made at the Kansas Livestock Association Legislative Social and Dinner in Topeka.

Colyer, who was the previous lieutenant governor, was sworn in as governor last month after Sam Brownback resigned to take a job in the Trump administration.

The new lieutenant governor will be sworn in at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the Kansas Statehouse.
