Former Democratic Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius will return to the state later this week. The visit is connected to an event being held for a statehouse politician who's weighing a run for the governor's office.
Sebelius will be in the Kansas City area on Thursday at an event for Democratic state Representative Paul Davis, from Lawrence. Davis has formed a committee to explore running for governor against incumbent Republican Sam Brownback.
Sebelius, the current U.S. secretary of Health and Human Services, will appear at the reception in Mission Hills to support Davis.
Sebelius is a former state insurance commissioner and was twice elected governor of Kansas. She resigned in 2009 to join President Obama’s administration.
