Skip to comments.Why Kansas Democrats may not be able to beat Rep. Kevin Yoder
Posted on 07/28/2018 1:52:47 PM PDT by centurion316
In 2014, a lot of Kansas Democrats were convinced that Gov. Sam Brownback was toast.
He ranked as one of the least popular governors in the country heading into that election. His tax cuts were widely derided as too much, too fast. The state was facing mounting budget deficits. A governor who had proclaimed himself to be pro-education suddenly was viewed as something else.
On the morning of the election, the respected political forecasting site FiveThirtyEight projected Democrat Paul Davis as having an 80 percent likelihood of winning the race.
But we all know how that election turned out. Davis proved to be a solid, but hardly flashy, contender. These days, hes a leading candidate to succeed Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins.
The lesson there? One of the oldest maxims in politics is youve got to beat somebody with somebody. And taking out an incumbent often means you need a special kind of candidate.
That brings us to the dilemma that 3rd District Kansas Democrats face these days. In an election that has the potential of turning out to be a blue wave for Democrats, the party has an unusually ripe opportunity to pick off Yoder and regain a House majority.

Because he’s got such a bitchin’ name?
Isn’t yoder that open boarders ryno?
I got a great idea... bring out Stalinist Sandy to campaign for all the KS Democrats.
Indeed Rino borders open Yoder is.
From what I’ve read Kevin Yoder is a Representaitve we need to lose.
I live in Wyandotte county and Wyandotte Country is malignant for Kansas (a LOT of undocumented people here).
Personally I give him one chance in three.
Oh, I forgot. It’s much better to have a Socialist Democrat in a Pelosi run House of Representatives than holding a Republican seat. What was I thinking?
Yeah, in fact we should lose 23 Republican seats in the House. That’s the ticket. What could possible go wrong?
He has an 88% rating from the A.C.U. and a 0% rating from planned parenthood. Yeah, I’m sure the Democratic would be just the same.
Yoder is a scumbag traitor who should have been primaried
The Primary election is August 7, 2018. Three Republicans are running for the District 3 seat. Yoder is favored, that’s what usually happens with the incumbent.

Here's a case where it might be better if the Democrat won. In any event it can't be any worse.
Yes, Rep. Yoder R-KS) is a servant of Big Ag and the Chamber of Cronies. He steered Paul Ryan’s pro-illegal alien bill through the Homeland Security Committee on Thursday. It guts Sessions’ reforms and reinstates Obama’s catch and release of illegals.
He personally fought for expanding the asylum laws to now include domestic violence and the threat of gangs, which never have been included as the basis for asylum. This will allow millions of women and their children to come in as refugees from Central America because dad beat up mom when he was drunk. We don’t have enough of those happy families in the US, so we have to import millions more.
Pres. Trump MUST VETO this bill should it land on his desk as it is programmed to do before the end of this session of Congress. Call your Congress person and let them know that you are not going to vote for them if they vote for this awful bill.
No; don’t be so dumb.
We should oppose Rino repubs who supports the Dim open border/amnesty agenda which Kevin Yoder does.
Consider the implications. The Republicans can only lose 23 seats in the House. If Pelosi becomes the Speaker, Democrats also take all of the Committee Chairs. Impeachment will proceed as the first order of business. Trump's agenda will be dead in the water.
The Stupid is strong among some Republicans.
Nancy Pelosi thanks you from the bottom of her little rotten heart.
More RINOs the merrier, right?
Yoder the Floater may well benefit from the crowded Democrat primary. The various candidates are far enough apart in their positions that it will be hard for them to unite behind the winner. On the other hand, Kansas 3rd is the only district who went for Clinton in 2016 and the Floater has been trying to distance himself a bit from the President. Will that help or hurt?
