Conservative prepares for general election against 'Rat Congressman Dennis Moore
Is this a US Senate race?
I love my home state of Kansas. All they have to do now is to elect Kobach over Moore and to find someone (a Republican) to defeat Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (roughly spelled) in order to have only Republicans in the national leadership (excluding state congressmen).
Moore won the 2002 election by about 7,000 votes or 3%. Has there been any change in his public popularity since?
It's a US House race, but I believe Kobach is a future star of the Republican party. He is conservative on every issue (and I don't think I'm exaggerating), he has degrees from Yale and Oxford, and he worked for the next truly great president after Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush. So, therefore, he could easily replace Pat Roberts or Sam Brownback (or Sebelius, for that matter), who are both Republican US senators from Kansas.
The man he defeated is Adam Taff, a moderate Republican who did not run a good campaign, especially since he really had no grass root support. I think Moore outspent him doubly (doubly?), but don't hold me to that. It will be different this time. The third district of Kansas is my old district (and will be my new one this Sunday, Go KU Jayhawks!) and I remember having a mock vote during the 92 presidential campaign. Trust me, I went to one of the poorest and diverse in the state, and, in that election, Bush was the landslide winner, followed by Perot in a distant second with Clinton finishing last. So, there's definitely a lot of conservatives in my old (new) district.
One of the great things about living in Kansas is that there is no such thing as a safe Democrat seat.
I certainly hope Congressman Moore gets nailed this time around ... he's not one of us.
No. Moore wins by attracting a coalition of Democrats, Independents, and moderate Republicans. Kobach has his work cut out for him.
Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social aspects that directly effects Generation Reagan / Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations (i.e. The Baby Boomers) are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.
Freep mail me to be added or dropped. See my home page for details and previous articles.
Kris Kobach born March 26, 1966 - A Gen-Xer
We need more Gen-Xers and fewer Baby Boomers in power
Check out his homepage http://www.kobachforcongress.com, Very Conservative, I wish him the best.
Most likely the KS Rinos in the the 3rd district will vote for Moore.
