• Full Endorsement: EMILY's List!

    I was just given the "full recommendation" endorsement by EMILY's List, the nation's largest resource for women in politics. President Stephanie Schriock said, “Margie Wakefield’s strong campaign has momentum that’s growing stronger by the day."

  • Endorsement: KNEA and NEA

    It's an honor to have the support of teachers from all across our district, our state, and our country. I will always be the first to raise my hand for public education in Washington.

  • I've been added to MSNBC's "36 Women to Watch in 2014"!

    I am humbled but very excited to be in the company of these amazing women, including Wendy Davis running for Governor in Texas, Allison Lundergan Grimes who is opposing McConnell in Kentucky, and Senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina.

TEAM WAKEFIELD

This campaign relies on reaching out person to person and neighbor to neighbor. That's the type of campaign we need to win. 

Will you sign up to volunteer and help take our district, state, and nation back today?

Margie Wakefield for Kansas

BREAKING NEWS: Kansas City Star Endorsement I am honored to announce that I have received the endorsement of the Kansas City Star! In endorsing me, the Star wrote: "Voters should feel comfortable sending this moderate Democrat to Washington at a time when the nation's capital can use much more moderation and a genuine feeling for the lives of real people." The paper concluded that, in six years, Congresswoman Jenkins has voted for the interests of her corporate donors far too often over the interests of her constituents, all while cutting billions from our public education system and voting against 2014 Farm Bill. In Congress, I'll make a commitment to public education and push to be placed on the House Agriculture Committee, which will allow me to give our farmers a voice in the construction of the policies that are critical to their success. The Star knows, like we've known all along, that I am the best choice for voters in the Second Congressional District. I need you to share this post with your family and friends and let them know that the Kansas City Star has spoken: Margie Wakefield for Congress!

Jenkins didn't stand up against her party. She stood with them and worked hard to block the re-authorization of VAWA: http://t.co/GNFsj7qc2R

Your Thoughts

I've already told you what I think about a handful of issues. I want to know where you stand. Please take the surveys below and join the conversation! 

A recent poll done by the Wind Coalition and the Climate + Energy Project says that 91% of Kansas voters are strongly supportive of using renewable energy. Are you in support of using renewable energy?
If you answered other to the previous question, please explain why.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated that an increase in the federal minimum wage to $10.10 would pull 900,000 Americans out of poverty and increase the net income of 16.5 million. CBO also estimates that it could reduce employment by 500,000 jobs. I'd like everyone to take the survey below and tell me what you think. Is it better to raise incomes and pull nearly a million people out of poverty at the expense of half a million jobs that currently pay $7.25. Or is it better to keep the status quo?
