Schmidt to N.M. AG: Your bracket is ‘baseless’

Release Date: Mar 18, 2015

TOPEKA – (March 18, 2015) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today issued the following statement in response to predictions by New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas, reported by the Associated Press, that New Mexico State will defeat KU and then Wichita State in the NCAA basketball tournament:

 “My friend and colleague Attorney General Balderas is obviously pandering his home-state crowd with his baseless prediction that New Mexico State will defeat both KU and Wichita State in the NCAA basketball tournament.  As a new attorney general, Mr. Balderas clearly has much to learn about Kansas basketball.  I wish him all the best in pondering these philosophical matters at length during the free time he will have next week after his team has departed the tournament this coming weekend in Omaha.”
