And what about the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, the first Dem who has a very serious chance of winning that seat since the Great Depression? Even though Barbara Bollier kept the “R” label through the initial years of the party’s right-ward, down-ward slide, she fought for the rights of women and other minorities in the Kansas Senate and pushed for common-sense gun laws to protect our children.
Finally, she gave up on the party that no longer agreed with Lincoln and Eisenhower's vision for America and joined the Democrats in name as well as policy.
We desperately need more Democratic Senators to stop the packing of the courts
with extremist judges and to reverse what four years of intentional destruction of our democratic institutions has wrought.
If ever there was a time that the vote of every decent Kansan is critical, it is now.
