Kansas Republicans go to the polls next month to choose their nominee for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Republican Sam Brownback, who is leaving Congress to run for governor.
And the Aug. 3 GOP primary is likely to determine the next senator from Kansas. The state hasn't sent a Democrat to the Senate since 1932.
Brownback's would-be successors, Jerry Moran and Todd Tiahrt both GOP members of the House share what to the naked eye would seem almost identical voting records in Congress. Nonetheless, each is trying to convince voters that he has the most conservative credentials.

Tiahrt voted to give illegal aliens in-state tuition.
Tiahrt is against fiscal responsibility and smaller government.
Tiahrt spends all his time in Washington and not in Wichita.
See? Two can quote from campaign ads. Twenty days and it'll all be over.
In fact, Tancredo just SWITCHED his support from Moran to Tiahrt because Tancredo, who has always fought against illegal immigrations, TANCREDO says that Tiahrt is better on the issue of immigration, than Moran.
Also, Moran wanted to close Gitmo, Moran wanted to give Constitutional Rights to Terrorists, and Moran was against cutting of welfare benefits to illegal aliens.
I'm just quoting campaign ads, same as you. Twenty more days and one of us will be proven wrong.
