Prasanth Reddy joins GOP primary in Kansas

Johnson County, Kansas: Oncologist Prasanth Reddy from Johnson county is seeking the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic Rep. Sharice Davids next year. Reddy, an executive at Labcorp in enterprise oncology and political newcomer, announced his campaign Wednesday emphasizing his life experience as an immigrant and officer in the Air Force Reserve.

“As an immigrant, I’ve lived the American dream, and I’ve spent my life trying to give back to the country that gave me everything,” Reddy said in a statement.

Reddy immigrated to Kansas from Chennai as a child. He attended Kansas State University and the University of Kansas Medical Center. “Right now, our country is at a breaking point, and there’s no time to sit on the sidelines.” Reddy called for secure borders, support for police and parental voice in education in his launch statement.

Whoever wins the primary will have an uphill battle in a district that Davids has won by increasing margins each cycle since she first ousted Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder in 2018.
