Seth Cordell Political Career
On April 23, 2022, Seth Cordell advanced from the Libertarian convention for Governor of Kansas.
When asked what inspired him to run the gubernatorial race, Seth said that Kansas is the home to many unique, intelligent, hard-working people who are not benefiting from the natural resources and natural beauty they have.
He said he wants to ensure a prosperous economy and equal opportunity for all Kansans. He also stated that he would take a deeper look into the shortcomings of the state and find practical solutions.
According to him, the draconian systems of the past have not worked to solve the underlying issues that lead to several societal problems. Senseless regulations, laws, and mandates are limiting the ability of Kansans to step up and show the US what they can do.
To all these problems, he aims to find solutions to them when elected as governor. There was no record of Seth ever handling a public office. This means that this is his first time running for a public office and he’s running for the post of governor.
Although Seth has already started his campaign moves, we can’t tell whether his low exposure to public office and third-party candidature will help him achieve his dream or not. Nevertheless, he’s the youngest of all the candidates.
