Disability rights advocate launches campaign to unseat Rep. Sharice Davids in Kansas

WASHINGTON -- A former national disability rights advocate on Monday officially kicked off a campaign to unseat Democratic Rep. Sharice Davids in Kansas.

Sara Hart Weir, 37, stepped down as president and CEO of the National Down Syndrome Society earlier this year to explore a campaign for Kansasí 3rd Congressional District and on Monday will officially file paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to run as a Republican.

Weirís campaign team includes former Rep. Lynn Jenkins, who represented the adjacent district and was a member of the GOP leadership when Republicans still controlled the U.S. House.

The Johnson County native said women need to play a prominent role if Republicans are to take back the House in 2020.
