Betts to take on Tiahrt

Finally, we may have found a candidate who can beat Rep. Todd Tiahrt. For years he has embarrassed the 4th seat of Kansas in the US House of Representatives. Could Donald Betts be the first real candidate with a chance? All he needs is money and a good campaign. All he has to do is point out that Tiahrt has used his seat to make himself rich at the taxpayer’s expense

and had contributed almost nothing to his constituents. He also never debates in an election because he is so ignorant about the issues. He just sells his votes to the highest bidder, then tries to justify his votes later.

From The Wichita Eagle, Sep. 29, 2007:

Wichita senator to seek Tiahrt's seat
The Wichita Eagle
State Sen. Donald Betts and Rep. Oletha Faust-Goudeau both said Friday that they will try to move up the political ladder in next year's elections.
Betts said he plans to run for the 4th District U.S. House seat now held by Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard.
Faust-Goudeau said she will seek to replace Betts in the Senate.
Both are Democrats and represent northeast Wichita at the Statehouse.
The announcements came during the Demofest, a statewide party meeting at the Hyatt Regency Wichita.
Betts plans to announce his candidacy at 9 a.m. Tuesday at Friends University, but Gov. Kathleen Sebelius beat him to it.
"State Sen. Don Betts is about to take the leap," she told a cheering crowd of about 300 in the hotel ballroom. "Meet the future 4th District congressman."

We can only hope
