Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer and a group of fellow governors are backing President Donald Trump’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Colyer and six fellow governors wrote to Norwegian Nobel Committee chairman Berit Reiss-Andersen this week, citing what they called Trump’s “transformative efforts to bring peace to the Korean peninsula.”
Earlier this month, 18 U.S. House Republicans formally nominated Trump, who’s preparing for a historic summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
Other signatories include Guam Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo; Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant; South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster; Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey; West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice; and Maine Gov. Paul LePage.
