Topeka, Kansas — January 22, 2018 — Republican second congressional district candidate, Tyler Tannahill, marched to the Statehouse steps today with thousands of Kansans supporting the right to life.
“We must elect a congressman who will speak for those who cannot speak for themselves,” said Tannahill. “I will stand for a culture that respects life and defends the unborn.”
Tannahill stood on the Statehouse steps before the crowd, alongside elected officials from across the state who share the belief that life must be protected.
“I appreciate the invitation to stand alongside so many Republicans from every corner of the state who fight every day for the unborn in Kansas,” said Tannahill. “As a father and a husband, I am committed to the right to life.”
Tannahill is a Marine veteran with service in Iraq and Afghanistan. He returned home as an advocate for veterans issues, including the quality of services at VA hospitals and awareness of PTSD. Tannahill serves as a member of Congressman Kevin Yoder’s Military and Veterans Advisory Committee, and served as an intern for Senator Jerry Moran.
“Working with pro-life members of the Kansas delegation, I had the opportunity to fight for the issues that are important to Kansans,” said Tannahill. “There is no more important right than the right to life.”
Tannahill lives in Leavenworth with his wife, Luisa, and their newborn son. He is a graduate of Kansas State University, and is the brother of K-State Football and NFL tight end, Travis Tannahill.
