Davis announces Democratic running mate for Governor race

Gubernatorial candidate Paul Davis has made his choice for lieutenant governor.

The Democrat has tabbed Jill Docking, at one point considered a possible opponent, for the job. Docking is a Wichita businesswoman and former chair of the Kansas Board of Regents.

Davis, the current House Minority Leader, and Docking are taking a four-city bus tour of Kansas. They will likely face current Gov. Sam Brownback and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, although that ticket has not formally announced a run. Brownback, meanwhile, defeated Docking for Bob Dole's old U.S. Senate seat in 1996
