    This time a Sarah Palin endorsement wasn't enough for victory. But score another win for Sen. Jim DeMint. Rep. Todd Tiahrt was edged out by Rep. Jerry Moran in a battle between two conservative congressmen for the Republican Senate nomination in Kansas. Moran is now considered the overwhelming favorite in November's general election to succeed GOP Sen. Sam Brownback, who is running for Kansas governor rather than for re-election to Congress. Tiahrt was endorsed by the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee in June. In a Facebook post, Palin said Tiahrt was "a protector of our Constitution,...

    "Rove is the second leading Republican leader to criticize Moran. Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert has repeatedly knocked Moran, saying "he was never there." "I mean, he’d always be out there grabbing a headline," Hastert said, "but he was never there in my experience of doing the hard work to make things happen.” In the interview, Rove wa particulary harsh on Moran for how the congressman approached a 2001 bill on trade promotion authority that Rove said was aimed at knocking down trade barriers and would have helped Moran's rural western Kansas district. Rove said Moran tried to cut a...

    Congressman Todd Tiahrt's (TEE'-hahrt's) latest television ad all but confirmed that he trails fellow Kansas Republican and congressman Jerry Moran in their race for the U.S. Senate. It even suggested Tiahrt may be significantly behind Moran. Tiahrt's campaign scoffed earlier this month when Moran's campaign released internal poll numbers showing Moran with a big lead as the two campaign for the GOP nomination. But Tiahrt's ad suggests some truth in Moran's numbers. The ad featured six votes. Five predate Moran's time in Congress. He cast them as a state legislator in the early 1990s, as he and his colleagues at...

    Tiahrt Press Release ^ | 24 March 2010 | Congressman Todd Tiahrt
    Less than a day after President Obama signed the Democrat’s healthcare bill into law, the Ranking Republican of the House subcommittee with funding jurisdiction over federal healthcare spending has proposed House-Senate strategy discussions to defund the new law. U.S. Congressman Todd Tiahrt (R-Kan.) has sent a letter to House and Senate leaders proposing that meetings begin immediately to "undo the damage" done by the new healthcare law, including moves to defund the new mandates. Tiahrt is the Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education. "Now that President Obama has signed the unconstitutional...

    It would also allow the states to sue the federal government. Idaho Governor "Butch" Otter has signed into law a measure that would require the state's attorney general to sue congress if the new health care bill passes. "To protect the people of Idaho, which is one of our first obligation as a government, is the right thing to do," said Governor Otter. That law is very similar to the Health Care Freedom Amendment Kansas Representative Aaron Jack (R) Andover and a number of other lawmakers are trying to pass in Topeka. "We just need to make sure the citizens...

    Mindi Davidson was "quite nervous" at the thought of meeting Sarah Palin on Friday night, but she wasn't daunted long. "Once you start talking to her, it's like talking to someone that you've known forever," Davidson said. Sharing the head table at the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce annual meeting, Davidson found she has a lot in common with Palin, despite her being a national Republican icon, former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate. Before Palin took command of the packed Salina Bicentennial Center arena -- with about 6,000 in attendance -- she engaged in "mainly just family" talk...

    I hate vanities, but need to let all those close to the Third Congressional District in Kansas (Kansas City, Olathe, Overland Park, Leawood, etc.) that John Rysavy is a Constitutionalist who supports American Judeo-Christian values. He needs help because he is running against a Republican who is not awful, but who has been in KS politics for many years. John is a "newbie" who believes that, as a nation, we need new blood that understands COMMON SENSE. His website is above. Please check him out, and if you can, please donate generously of your time, your talent or even your...

  • KS-Sen. 2010: Time to build anew, not reshape the old; McCain moderation is politics of convenience

    The Washington Times ^ | 2009-12-04 | U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Kansas, 4th District
    Like most Americans, I am grateful for Sen. John McCain's heroic service as a fighter pilot, a prisoner of war and, for nearly a generation, a member of the House and the Senate. But I am troubled by reports in recent weeks that Mr. McCain has been, as Politico put it, "working behind-the-scenes to reshape the Republican Party in his own center-right image" and has "emerged as a political godfather" to moderate candidates, including my opponent in the race for the Republican Senate nomination in Kansas. In that spirit, I would like to make Mr. McCain an offer he shouldn't...

    Congressional candidate Rob Wasinger, R-Cottonwood Falls, gained the endorsement of U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the GOP's presidential nominee in 2008. "Rob Wasinger has the right experience, vision, and values to lead Kansas into an era of economic growth and prosperity. He is an exemplary public servant we can trust," McCain was quoted saying in a news release from the Wasinger campaign. "I am humbled to be supported by Sen. John McCain, an American hero who has served our country with honor and integrity both in uniform and in Congress," Wasinger said in the same release. Wasinger is the former...

    In case you'd been losing sleep wondering just who would get Sen. John McCain's support in the race for Sen. Sam Brownback's seat in Kansas when he steps down in 2010, the answer is in: U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran. He, of course, just nipped Rep. Todd Tiahrt to it, and just in time, too. In case you'd forgotten, the presidential election cycle ended a full, well, not quite full, 11 months ago. It's back to politics time, baby. Now, exactly why Sen. McCain, the GOP presidential candidate in 2008 (in case you'd forgotten, it was so long ago) would get...
  • Conservative Patricia Lightner Runs in KS-03

    09/21/2009 8:58:17 PM PDT · by RightMike · 13 replies · 868+ views
    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.
