Republican Mike Dodson, former Manhattan mayor, won the Kansas House District 67 seat in the preliminary vote count.

According to the unofficial final results, Dodson led Democrat Sherrill Arthur by 1,053 votes at the end of the night with reports of all circuits in Riley County. If tonight’s results continue, Dodson will replace outgoing Republican Representative Tom Phillips representing Ogden and parts of Manhattan.

Dodson’s campaign focused on improving schools and health systems during the COVID-19 pandemic, while Arthur supported the expansion of Medicaid, sustainability, and advanced government educational funding.

Incumbent Democratic Representative Sidney Carlin ran for the 66th Kansas House seat without opposition. Karlin has held this seat since 2002, and has passed more than a dozen bills in the position. Unofficial preliminary results included 6,941 votes for Karlin and 412 written votes.
