TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Libertarian Keen Umbehr has put his name on the November Kansas ballot for governor, saying residents want a government that is fair for all people all the time.

The 55-year-old Alma attorney filed the paperwork and paid a fee Tuesday to make his bid official.

Umbehr says taxes and civil liberties are first on his agenda. His running mate is his son, Dr. Josh Umbehr, a Wichita physician.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and his running mate, Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, filed last week for their bid for a second term.

Democrat Paul Davis, the current House minority leader, is running for governor with Jill Docking as his running mate, but they have yet to file. The filing deadline is June 2. No other Democrats have entered the race.
