New Kansas Rep. Jake LaTurner Tested Positive for the Coronavirus

TOPEKA, Kan. — New Kansas Rep. Jake LaTurner tested positive for the coronavirus while participating in a joint session of Congress that certified President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the Electoral College.

LaTurner’s office tweeted Thursday the freshman Republican “is not experiencing any symptoms at this time.” LaTurner had voted to object to the counting of Arizona’s electoral votes for Biden. The tweet said he was following the advice of the House physician and CDC guidelines and didn’t return to the House floor for other votes.

LaTurner took office Sunday, representing the 2nd District of eastern Kansas. He is a former Kansas state treasurer and unseated GOP Rep. Steve Watkins in the August primary.
