    Moran for U.S. Senate Current Republican congressman Jerry Moran is the choice to be the next senator from Kansas based on his experience and record. Yoder for U.S. House, 3rd District Republican Kevin Yoder, who is leaving the Kansas House, is quick-witted and thoughtful, giving him the edge to take over the seat being vacated by longtime congressman Dennis Moore, a Democrat.

    The Dems still don't seem to understand what's happening here. The three weeks left until the midterm elections appears an eerily quiet calm before the storm. And quiet though it may be, it presages a coming asteroid strike that Washington’s beltway elites are doing their level best to ignore. For those who care to look, the danger is obvious, yet the present calm creates the illusion that safety for Democrats is possible. Unfortunately, the damage coming is not like anything seen by the left or the right in generations. The damage promises to be so severe that existing labels of...

    Some of the Democratic Party’s most endangered lawmakers are taking steps to distance themselves from Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an attempt to inoculate themselves from charges that they are beholden to the unpopular House leader and supportive of the ambitious national Democratic agenda. Three vulnerable Democrats from conservative-oriented districts are already running TV ads spotlighting their defiance of Pelosi. One freshman incumbent recently joked about the possibility of Pelosi not being able to take up the gavel next year because she might pass away. Another member from a tough district suggested he might run for speaker himself. The roster of...

The sources close to Democratic Congressman Dennis Moore back up earlier reports that Moore, the congressman's wife, did polling in the district before deciding to make the race a go. She will be vying to replace her husband, who announced last year he won't be seeking a seventh term. The former Johnson County District Attorney has held his own in a generally Republican 3rd Congressional District.

Gordon said in a statement that, after a quarter-century in Congress, it’s time to retire. “Every decision I have made in Congress has been with their best interests in mind,” he said. “I hope the people here at home feel that I have served them as well as their good advice and views have served me. “When I was elected, I was the youngest member of the Tennessee congressional delegation; now, I’m one of the oldest.

The only Republican voting in favor of the measure was New Orleans-based Joseph Cao who has long ago proven to be a tax and spend (and spend and spend) liberal.

    Patricia Lightner, a conservative Republican and former state representative, is campaigning for a position in the Third Congressional District, and has formally launched a campaign web site. The seat is held by Rep. Dennis Moore, a Democrat, who has been under public scrutiny lately for what critics say is his lack of accountability and availability to his constituents. Lightner said she was motivated to enter the race out of a desire to promote liberty in individualism, freedom of economic choice and the right to life. Lightner said these rights have been compromised by the Democratic majority in Washington, including Moore.

The long-expected announcement presents Moore, the five-term 3rd District incumbent, a potentially formidable Republican challenger who has shown an ability to appeal to conservative and moderate Republicans. Moore campaign manager Julie Merz said only that her boss would “continue to provide moderate, common-sense leadership and top-notch constituent services” to the district. “He looks forward to campaigning — next year.” Jordan’s entry also sets up three pivotal congressional races in the Kansas...

And he lost by a bigger margin than any Republican who has challenged Moore, whose political survival skills keep him in office in the Republican-dominated 3rd Congressional District. The latest win doesn't ensure an easy election for Moore in the future, but it does mean Republicans may have an even more difficult task of defeating him. There is chatter among Republicans on the Internet complaining that Kobach's conservative campaign emphasizing a gay-marriage amendment and...

    Everyone agrees that Adam Taff is a contender. The Kansas Republican has $150,000-plus in the bank, name recognition and a firm grip. The big question facing the 6-foot-3 college-football star turned Navy fighter pilot is whether Republicans in Washington will help him defeat Democratic Rep. Dennis Moore, who narrowly beat Taff last year to hold onto his 3rd District seat in the Kansas City suburbs. Last time, as Taff and his political consultant, Joseph Gaylord, see it, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) dropped the ball by not responding to Democratic television ads. "They were solidly in the mindset that...

    Topeka - Congressman Dennis Moore told fellow Democrats on Saturday that he would not run for the U.S. Senate next year. And Moore's preferred candidate, former U.S. Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman, said he wasn't planning a campaign, either. However, a few prominent Democrats prepared to work on Glickman. Democrats are looking for a strong candidate to challenge Republican Sen. Sam Brownback in 2004, someone who is known to voters and can raise between $2 million and $3 million in campaign contributions. As they gathered Saturday for the events surrounding their annual Washington Days convention, party activists were inspired by Gov....

    Filed at 6:11 p.m. ET WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republicans yanked a radio ad Thursday that was aimed at black voters in Kansas and Missouri comparing Social Security benefits to slavery reparations -- except paid to whites by blacks. It was the latest skirmish in a multistate war over Social Security ads pegged to November's congressional elections. The commercial was paid for by a Republican interest group and aired in the Kansas City area on an urban contemporary station whose listeners are predominantly black. GOPAC, which is headed by Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating, said the ad was a mistake and withdrew...
