Men named Ron Estes managed to win and lose the Republican primary in Kansas 4th Congressional District on Tuesday.
First-term Rep. Ron Estes faced an unusual race in the Wichita area, as he faced off against competitor Ron M. Estes. In the end, the incumbent (whose middle name is Gene) prevailed.
The district is heavily Republican, so Rep. Estes is the favorite to win the November general election.
Ron M. Estes announced his candidacy in May by calling Rep. Estes the epitome of the D.C. swamp, The Wichita Eagle reported.
I believe Kansas Republicans deserve a Rep. Ron Estes who will show up and represent 4th District Kansans, the challenger said at that time. I feel compelled to run in and win this primary to defend our Kansas values.

"I'm Agent Johnson. This is Agent Johnson. No relation."
It sounds like the Dems deliberately recruited this guy because of his name, thinking it would confuse enough voters. Boy, they’re creative.
“Hi, I’m Larry. This is my brother Darrell, and this is my other brother Darrell.”
Dems have done this in Republican primaries before (including Texas where you can claim it is your nickname).
God, Estes is a dick, but Ron is a pretty nice guy.
HuffAndPuff has never said anything good about a Republican.
He must have been a RAT plant for them to go all goo-goo on him.
Also in 1976, a Republican Bob Casey (not the current Senator nor his father, nor the guy from Cambria County - so far as I know it wasn’t the ice cream guy either) lost to Doug Walgren for Congress.
Walgren was eventually beaten by Rick Santorum, who lost to the current Senator Bob Casey.
