Kansas Party Official Throws Support Behind Dean
Dean Spokesman Says Endorsement Gives Campaign Local Visibility

POSTED: 1:10 p.m. CDT September 22, 2003
UPDATED: 1:27 p.m. CDT September 22, 2003

TOPEKA, Kan. -- Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean has received his first endorsement from a Kansas party leader.

Larry Tenopir, a Topeka attorney, is supporting the former Vermont governor. Tenopir has been a Democratic activist for three decades and is one of Kansas' two representatives on the Democratic National Committee.

Tenopir also is a "super-delegate," someone who is automatically chosen to attend the party's national nominating convention in Boston next year. Kansas has seven super-delegates, including Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, and 41 delegates overall.

Dean spokesman Garrett Graff said such an endorsement is important because it gives a campaign visibility with local activists when a candidate does not have the resources to form a state organization.

8. Yep
But it is a very hard bitten group of boys and girls. We are strong in Wyandotte Co and Douglas Co (KCK and Lawrence) primarily.
