The Tiahrt and Moran campaign—what’s the difference?

From Wichita Peace and Freedom Party Examiner

What do two candidates for the Republican nomination do to win over voters when their opponent is really selling the same old slop? They nit pick over meaningless fodder such as who raised taxes, or who raised them the most, or who saved voters the most on their taxes. This has been the case with the campaign between Rep. Todd Tiahrt and Rep. Jerry Moran, in their bid for Republican nominee to replace U.S. Senator Sam Brownback.
According to The Wichita Eagle:

Senate candidate Todd Tiahrt's campaign accused fellow Kansas Republican hopeful Jerry Moran on Wednesday of trying to hide past votes to raise taxes, while Moran's campaign labeled Tiahrt's tactics as desperate.
The two congressmen sparred over a television ad from Tiahrt attacking Moran on tax votes. The ad began airing Tuesday in what appeared to be a light rotation in the Topeka, Wichita and Kansas City markets.
Both Tiahrt and Moran have portrayed themselves as fiscal conservatives, favoring lower taxes and less spending by the federal government. They're vying for the seat held by U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, a Republican who's running for governor. The primary is Aug. 3.

The reality is that these are pro-business politicians who will use their seat to vote against government regulations and to make sure their business friends get everything they want. They don’t have much to offer the public other than lowering taxes a tiny amount to convince gullible voters that they are trying to save them money and make their lives easier.
As for hot button issues such as abortion, gay marriage and gun control, there positions are the same. Therefore it is important for them to find ways to look different from each other and provide a contrast.
There really isn’t much difference between Tiahrt and Moran. Kansas Republicans all say about the same thing and they haven’t had any candidates with new ideas for a long time. It’s the same old same old.

It is my belief that Moran is not as sleazy and has more credibility as an honest politician, but even that isn’t really much.

Dangerous lunatics like you belong in prison

Our economy has suffered for years. I believe we could greatly improve our economy by addressing the illegal immigration issue in our state. The Pew Hispanic Center posted that approximately 40,000 to 70,000 illegal immigrants were living in Kansas in 2005. In addition to receiving assistance from our state, Kansas is one of the few states that give illegal immigrants in-state tuition to attend college. Many of those also qualify for grants. It is the Kansas taxpayers who are paying for their assistance and education. Our health care system is suffering as a result of the illegal immigrants, as well. All one has to do is look at the southern border states, which has the largest population of illegal immigrants, to see what the future holds for America as the illegal immigration population continues to expand in our nation. Like our federal government, those states have huge deficits. Rep. Todd Tiahrt states on his website he does not support giving illegal immigrants amnesty. Additionally, he supports securing our borders. On his website, Rep. Jerry Moran supports securing our borders, however, he does not address his stance on illegal immigration. He states our immigration laws are broken. Rep. Jerry Moran sounds like President Obama on this issue. I have to wonder why he does not state his position on illegal immigration. Does he agree with President Obama's stance of giving them amnesty? It's your tax dollar, you decide!
