Adkins will take COVID test after supporter tests positive

Amanda Adkins, the new Republican nominee in Kansas 3rd District, will be tested for the coronavirus after the campaign was told a supporter at her primary night election party tested positive for COVID-19. 

Adkins campaign manager Matt Patterson said Friday Adkins would take the test within five days. She also will self-quarantine for 14 days and take another test at the end of her quarantine. Adkins, of Overland Park, won Tuesday's primary in a field of five candidates and will face Democratic Rep. Sharice Davids in the November general election.
