Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree is facing a reelection challenge from Jackson County, Missouri, prosecutor Kristiane Bryant.

A pair of editorials in the Kansas City Star over the last week highlighted much of the negative feedback that community members have about the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office under Mark Dupree.

Today the outspoken DA responded to the criticism, and discussed his conduct in office and hopes for reelection.
