Kansas lawmakers have approved new restrictions blocking teenagers and out-of-state candidates from future races for governor. The bill says starting next year, candidates must live in Kansas and be at least 25 years old.

A wave of candidates even included a Hutchinson man attempting to enter his dog in the race.
