Ken Selzer To Face Dennis Anderson In Kansas Insurance Commissioner Election

Ken Selzer of Leawood has won the Republican nomination for Kansas insurance commissioner.

His nearest rival was Eudora health insurance consultant Beverly Gossage, followed by state Senator Clark Shultz of Lindsborg.

Selzer will face Democrat and Overland Park businessman Dennis Anderson in the November election.

Three-term Republican Commissioner Sandy Praeger didn't seek re-election after breaking with most of the GOP and praising the Affordable Care Act.

Selzer is a critic of the ACA. He is a certified public accountant and an executive managing director of Aon Benfield; a company that provides coverage for insurance companies against catastrophic claims.
