Bill's Run: A Political Journey in Rural Kansas

EPISODE:

Episode Info

In "Bill's Run," filmmaker Richard Kassebaum chronicles his brother Bill's 2002 run for the Kansas House of Representatives. Kassebaum, a rancher and assistant county attorney, is the son of former senator Nancy Landon Kassebaum (and the grandson of 1936 GOP presidential candidate Alf Landon). He decides to run because he believes that school-funding shortfalls are hurting his rural district, and the incumbent, House Majority Leader Shari Weber, is a staunch antitax conservative.
