    Six state senators in the moderate wing of the Kansas Republican Party on Friday endorsed the re-election bid of Topeka Sen. Anthony Hensley, the chamber's top Democrat. Sen. John Vratil, the Senate's vice president and a Lenexa Republican who chose not to seek re-election in 2012, said Hensley would continue to make policy decisions in the best interests of Kansans.

    Conservative Republicans who've been working to push GOP moderates out of state legislatures in a large section of the country have scored big victories in Kansas, where a state Senate that has been an obstacle to fiscal and social policy changes is likely to have a solid majority on the right next year. Unlike other states, where results for conservatives have been mixed, Tuesday's primary in Kansas saw voters in GOP races oust seven incumbent moderate senators. An eighth, Senate President Steve Morris, a moderate Hugoton Republican, trailed his conservative opponent, likely marking the end of Morris' 20-year career as...

    Conservative Republican challengers Tuesday either unseated or were leading most of the GOP moderates in the Kansas Senate, improving their chances of reshaping the Legislature and ending a check on the political right’s agenda. The most prominent victim of the conservative surge appeared to be Senate President Steve Morris, the unofficial leader of the state’s moderatae Republicans. With one precinct yet to be counted in his southwestern Kansas race against state Rep. Larry Powell of Garden City, Morris — who had served in the Senate for 20 years — trailed by 300 votes as of midnight. Final, unofficial results showed...

    Besides knowing who to vote for earlier today, the Metz family of Lenexa checked off another important piece of preparation — making sure everyone had photo ID before going to the polls. Today’s primary election in Kansas is the first major run for Kansas’ requirement that all voters show a government-issued photo identification. So as they left for their polling place at the Central Church of the Nazarene in Lenexa, Marty and Kristin Metz made sure that they and their daughter Joy Metz carried identification. “I thought it went well,” Marty Metz said of the process of showing his ID. “It was really...

    Santorum Strong in Kansas Rick Santorum looks set for a comfortable lead in the state of Kansas, which holds its caucuses Saturday with 40 delegates up for grabs. "We chased all the candidates out of Kansas!" Santorum said Friday. Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have skipped the state to focus on Alabama and Mississippi, with their primaries on Tuesday. Santorum is expected to win the state even though Bob Dole, the former GOP presidential candidate from Kansas, endorsed Romney earlier this week.
