Aug 7 - Kansas!

August is packed with primaries, and there are 4 on Aug 7 plus a special election! Let's start today with Kansas, where we have a governors race, several House races, and the whole Kansas State House!


Governor's race

Former Governor Sam Brownback ran the state budget into the ground and then ran out of the state to the Trump administration, which is sad because he really deserved to face some voter wrath for his mismanagement. Lt Gov Jeff Colyer took over and is running for a full term, but Dems are still fired up, with 5 teams running (a lot of Republicans are fired up as well, they have 6 teams challenging Colyer!) Emily's List has endorsed State Senator Laura Kelly with State Senators Lynn Rogers.


House races

KS2 (Topeka, Lawrence, Leavenworth and the SE corner): an open R+10 seat ripe for the flipping! Only one Dem in the race, Paul Davis, so get to know him for the fall!

KS3 (Kansas City): not open, but only R+4 so a great chance to get ANY Dem in the Kansas House Delegation. Emily's List has endorsed attorney Sharice Davids in this crowded field.


Kansas State House

The WHOLE House is up every 2 years, but there is a surprising dearth of competitive primaries. Still, there are a few:

HD18 (Shawnee): The Dem incumbent has a challenger

HD22 (Kansas City): The Dem incumbent has a challenger

HD30 (Kansas City): 2 Dems are running to flip this open seat!

HD40 (Leavenworth): The Dem incumbent has a challenger

HD45 (Lawrence): 3 Dems are running to flip this open seat!

HD46 (Lawrence): The Dem incumbent has a challenger

HD55 (Topeka): The Dem incumbent has a challenger

HD89 (Wichita): The Dem incumbent has 2 challengers

HD99 (Wichita/Andover): 2 Dems are running to challenge the Rep incumbent

HD113 (Great Bend area): 2 Dems are running to challenge the Rep incumbent


Get out the and vote KS!!!! #beavoter
