The Kansas Secretary of State has approved Republican Crystal Dozier's request to be removed from the ballot for the House District 83 race.
Dozier had cited a medical hardship for having her name withdrawn from the ballot in the race against Democratic state Rep. Henry Helgerson.
Dozier cited COVID-19 in explaining her hardship, but didn't go into details about her medical history that would keep her from running for office and serving.
A 2015 law only allows a nominee to remove their name from the ballot because they face a medical hardship or moved out of state . . .
