Democrats in Crawford County Kansas, congregated at Lincoln Park in Pittsburg for a picnic.
The event was held to rally up supporters in the area for upcoming elections. Some elected officials were on hand to answer party members questions. 2012 candidate for congress Tobias Schlingensiepen thanked supporters. He was defeated by Lynn Jenkins and believes the country could see ugly times if we don't come together.
"I honestly don't belong to those that thing government should be blamed for this I believe our representative and government need to show some backbone instead of following money that laid in their campaign chest and they need to rise up and develop a vision because without that vision they can't lead" says Schlingensiepen.
The group also took donations for upcoming events.
