TOPEKA, KS – The Kansas Chapter of Americans for Prosperity released the following statement in response to Gov. Sam Brownback’s Kansas Supreme Court appointment today:

“Caleb Stegall is certainly well-qualified to serve on the Kansas Supreme Court,” said AFP-Kansas State Director Jeff Glendening. “We thank Gov. Brownback for appointing him.

“Caleb has a brilliant legal mind which is grounded in reality and Constitutional principles. He loves Kansas and we applaud his willingness to serve its people in the state’s highest court.

“For the past several years, AFP-Kansas has supported reforms to our judicial selection process to implement a Senate confirmation process for nominees to the Kansas Supreme Court. Our organization is still supportive of such reforms.

“Although we’re pleased with Caleb’s appointment to the Kansas Supreme Court, we would still be in favor of a more transparent approach to the judicial selection process.”
