TOPEKA, KS (KCTV) -

The Kansas Republican Party's Executive Director has filed a challenge questioning the candidacy of one Vermin Supreme. 

Supreme is a Republican challenging Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt in the party's primary later this summer. 

"I'm here in fact to avenge the death of a miniature horse named Misty who was killed in a petting zoo in Kansas here a while back and the perpetrators are still at large,” Supreme told WIBW the day he filed. 

Supreme, who dressed as a wizard the day he filed, has campaigned in the past for "mandatory dental hygiene" and government distribution of free ponies. 

Making everyone aware of the "upcoming zombie apocalypse" is also a concern of Supreme's. 

Kansas Republican Party Executive Director Jim Joice filed the challenge this week contesting Supreme's residency in the state. 

A native of Baltimore, Supreme told the Topeka Capital-Journal that's residing in Topeka during the campaign.
