For the fifth episode of “The Discourse” podcast, we are joined by new Kansas governor Jeff Colyer.
Colyer is a surgeon who previously served as the state’s lieutenant governor. On January 31, he was sworn in as the state’s 47th governor when his gubernatorial predecessor, Sam Brownback, was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve as Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom.
He discussed the direction he wants to take his state in, whether he would sign legislation to increase the minimum age to buy any firearm to 21, the opioid crisis, 2018 midterms, and more.
