Tiahrt’s job will cost him

Alan Bjerga is running against Rep. Todd Tiahrt in this election. With all the dirt uncovered on Tiahrt and all the flops as screw ups he’s had the last few years, the race would seem a slam-dunk for Bjerga. But Bjerga only has $2,700 so far. He also isn’t taken very serious by the Democratic Party establishment.
But there is one good side to all of this. There have been lots of commercials featuring Tiahrt, trying to claim he has done a lot for Kansas. Why is this a good thing? Because he has more than a $million in campaign contributions and now he has to spend them to keep his office. That’s less money for Tiahrt’s pocket change.

isn't Garth McGuinn the challenger?

Either my information was wrong or Garth McGuinn decided to take over and run instead of Alan Bjerga. The funding amount was about the same.
