Marc Bennett was elected as Sedgwick County District Attorney in November 2012. He is the first new DA for the county in 24 years. He succeeded Nola Foulston, who had served as DA since 1989.

The Wichita Women Attorneys Association Monday night held a candidate forum for the judicial and district attorney races in Sedgwick county.

The DA race and 5 judicial races will be decided in the Republican Primary.

The forum held at the Hughs Metroplex on the WSU campus featured candidates from the six contested judicial races, and the two candidates for District Attorney.

Republicans Kevin O’Connor and Marc Bennett are running for the spot that will be vacated by DA Nola Foulston who is retiring after 24 years of service. The race will be decided in the primary.
