What’s Going On In Kansas?   Leave a comment

Politically speaking, Kansas is as about as red a red state can be..on the surface, that is. Inside, not so much.

Why? Well, there are two statewide races of note this year in the Sunflower State: (1)the Kansas Gubernatorial election involving deeply unpopular Gov. Sam Brownback, who seems to be in a fight for his life opposite Democratic challenger Paul Davis, and (2)the Kansas Senate election, a three-way race between equally unpopular incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts and challengers Chad Taylor (D) and independent Greg Orman.

Most years, odds are both Brownback and Roberts would be cruising to re-election but this is not one of those years; if current polling for both races (KS Gov. & KS Sen.) holds up, Democrats’ could have a better-than-even shot of knocking off either Brownback or Roberts (and that’s just for starters: in a head-to-head btwn. Roberts & Orman, Orman easily dusts Roberts in November) Given how close the overall margins for control of the Senate are going to be this November, an Orman win all-but-sinks GOP hopes in that regard. 

Make no mistake: these are definitely two of the races one should be watching from now on through Election Night 2014.
