• 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?

LYNN JENKINS: MILLION-DOLLAR LIES For weeks, I've been talking about the misleading ads and deceiving flyers that Lynn Jenkins has put on television and into thousands of mailboxes in Eastern Kansas. Now, even Sandy Praeger, the Kansas Insurance Commissioner and a Republican, is criticizing Lynn Jenkins for lying to the voters of our district. She told the Topeka Capital-Journal that the Congresswoman's claims are "just across-the-board wrong." LIE # 1: Lynn Jenkins claims that Medicare benefits are being cut by over $700 billion. Sandy Praeger says, "There have been no cuts in benefits." LIE # 2: Lynn Jenkins claims that health-care premiums will increase by 15 percent. Sandy Praeger says that the premium rates for Kansas families have not yet been published, but that the average family would see increases of less than five percent, far less than in past years. We should see the actual numbers in the next few days. LIE # 3: Lynn Jenkins claims that millions of families have had their policies canceled. Sandy Praeger says, "No policies have been canceled due to A.C.A." We just cannot trust Lynn Jenkins to tell the truth. The A.C.A. isn't perfect, but we ought to be focusing our efforts on seeking common-sense solutions to improving the law. Instead, Congresswoman Jenkins has spent over one-million dollars lying and fear-mongering to advance her obstructionist agenda. Her obsession with repealing the A.C.A. is leading the dysfunction in Washington. It's critical that you read this article, then share it with your family and your friends. With just over a week left in this campaign, we cannot stand for another day of Lynn Jenkins purposefully lying to voters in a desperate attempt to steal this election.

You have the power...please invite your friends to join our movement. First, I want to thank everyone who has been participating in the conversation on this page for the past year. From the beginning we knew we were going to be outspent on television by Lynn Jenkins and her special interest donors. That's why this page and your engagement is so vital to our success. Each time you like a post, comment on a post or share a post, that message goes on your timeline that your FB friends then see. Due to this, our success in growing this page is entirely because of you. Now is when we have to get more aggressive. If everyone following this page would send a personal message to at least 10 of your FB friends in the next 24 hours, explaining that you are supporting this campaign and asking them to like our page and join this conversation we can begin reaching even more voters. This is how we beat the special interest money flowing into Lynn Jenkins' campaign; person-to-person. This is how we win. Will you help? Please let me know that you have reached out to your FB friends and share this post with all of your friends. With less than 2 weeks remaining, now is when we need to turn up the pressure. Thank you.

CONGRESSWOMAN JENKINS REFUSES TO DEBATE IN SOUTHEAST KANSAS The voters of Southeast Kansas deserve an opportunity to listen to the candidates have a lively, face-to-face discussion about the issues, so it's a travesty that Lynn Jenkins, their Congresswoman, refuses to debate in their communities. On Monday, I attended a candidate forum in Fort Scott and had the opportunity to pass along an invitation to Congresswoman Jenkins from the Student Government Association at Pittsburg State for a debate on their campus at the end of October. Those students at Pittsburg State had put a lot of work into organizing a debate, and I accepted their invitation several weeks ago, but they just could not get ahold of the Congresswoman, so I decided to help them out. Unfortunately, over 24 hours later, the Congresswoman has yet to respond to their invitation. I'm not surprised, though. With the help of her corporate donors, she has been jamming television sets and filling mailboxes with ads and flyers that are deceiving voters and distorting her record. She's content to fire off negative attacks from a distance instead of having a substantive, constructive discussion of the issues for the voters of Southeast Kansas. I need you to share this post with your family and your friends and let's ask Lynn Jenkins: Why won't you debate in Southeast Kansas?

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?
