Tobias Schlingensiepen

Well, it is a name that might get attention, but it is also kinda hard to remember



Not sure what it means either. Schlingen is a sling, but siepen is not in my German-English dictionary. Babelfish cannot translate it either. Maybe it used to be sieben. Seven slings (for seven brothers?).

He's a candidate for Congress in the 2nd district. Pastor of the First Congregational Church in Topeka, which is NOT Charles Sheldon's church (darn the luck). Not that most people have heard of Charles Sheldon. http://www.kshs.org/kansapedia/charles-monroe-sheldon/12201

As for Tobias, so far he is not saying much "Tobias values hard work and believes Washington needs to start working for their constituents, not narrow special interests or their own personal gain. Tobias knows the only way to get people back to work is by ensuring we have an economy that rewards innovation and a strong work ethic. He will bring those beliefs and values with him to Washington and send a message to Beltway insiders that ‘enough is enough.’"

Not sure why the attack on Washington instead of Lynn Jenkins.

Then again, it is not like I know how to craft a winning message.

I wish him well, and it is good to have a candidate. One down, I guess, and three to go.

1. I got an email from someone in the Progressive Caucus about him.

She recommended him highly.

Sorry I can't find the email or I'd forward it to you. I must have deleted it.
