Kansas Candidates Scrambling in Competitive House Race

KSAL StaffApril 10, 2017

Kansas’ unexpectedly competitive special congressional election pulls Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to Wichita to campaign for Republican candidate Ron Estes amid a flood of out-of-state GOP money in a late-hour scramble for votes.

His Democratic rival James Thompson is spending the final day of campaigning before Tuesday’s election talking directly to voters. His campaign says Thompson is countering the Cruz visit by knocking on doors, going to diners and doing radio and television interviews much as he has throughout the campaign.

At stake is a House seat Republicans have held for more than two decades. Trump easily won with 60 percent of the votes cast in the 17-county congressional district of south-central Kansas.

The vacancy was created when Trump chose former U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo as his CIA director.]
