Bio

Lynn Wayne Rogers (born September 11, 1958) is an American politician and businessman who is the 51st and current lieutenant governor of Kansas since 2019. A Democrat, he had previously served in the Kansas Senate from the 25th district from 2017 to 2019. Rogers was born on September 11, 1958 in Fremont, Nebraska. After graduating from University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1980, he worked in Nebraska as a Marketing Specialist for several years until he moved to Wichita, Kansas in 1985 to accept a position with Farm Credit Bank of Kansas. In 1993, Rogers became a Vice President with CoBank Farm Credit Leasing, where he would remain until his election to the Kansas Senate in 2016. Rogers' first elected office was as a member of the Wichita School Board, where he served from 2011-2018. In 2016, he was elected to the Kansas Senate's traditionally Republican 25th district, replacing outgoing Senator Michael O'Donnell, who vacated the seat to run for Sedgwick County Commissioner. In his time as a Senator, Rogers worked to "reverse the Brownback-Colyer tax experiment and invest more in our schools." On May 24, 2018, Laura Kelly announced that she had selected Rogers as her running mate in the 2018 Kansas gubernatorial election. On November 6, 2018, Kelly and Rogers prevailed over the Republican ticket of Kris Kobach and Wink Hartman and independent ticket of Greg Orman and John Doll.
