MAGA Hot Mic: Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District GOP candidate Amanda Adkins
September 5, 2022
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic honors fall on Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District GOP candidate Amanda Adkins.
Amanda Adkins, who was chair of the Kansas Republican Party while they supported a constitutional amendment banning abortion, wrote an op-ed completely lying about her extreme position.
CNN: “Amanda Adkins, the Republican candidate running against Rep. Sharice Davids in Kansas’ competitive 3rd Congressional District, wrote in an op-ed earlier this month saying she did not ‘support a federal ban on abortion, nor do I support any other federal policymaking related to contraception or fertility.’ But while Adkins was chairwoman of the Kansas Republican Party, the organization supported ‘a Human Life Amendment to the U. S. Constitution,’ as well as ‘legislation to make clear the Fourteenth Amendment’s protection applies to unborn children.’ Adkins campaign did not respond to a request for comment.”
Associated Press: “A decade earlier, as Kansas’ Republican chair, Adkins had supported a strict abortion ban in the party’s platform. Adkins’ Star piece also followed close on the heels of Kansas voters’ decisive rejection of a constitutional amendment that would have nullified a state Supreme Court decision guaranteeing the right to an abortion. Notably, the referendum failed in Johnson County — the teeming, suburban heart of Davids’ district — by more than 2-to-1. Adkins publicly supported the amendment. Nunn’s and Adkins’ efforts to deemphasize their previous conservative stances on abortion are conspicuous.”
Kansas voters made clear that Americans support a woman’s right to choose, and candidates like Amanda Adkins are straight up lying about their positions on abortion because the GOP agenda is dangerous and too extreme. Make no mistake, abortion extremism is the GOP party line.
