Democrats have their eyes on the Kansas House and Senate — Saturday night fundraiser
By SJ Otto
This Saturday Night members of the Kansas Democratic Party met for a fund raiser here in
They have reason to be optimistic this time around. Sam Brownback's approval rating
is as low as it has ever been, about 17%. People in Wichita know that he has the help of many Tea
Party Republicans in the Kansas Senate and House. So this is a good chance to
finally get rid of his "rubber stamp" minions. Kansas
Democratic Leaders at this event believe that these Brownback supporters are extremely vulnerable to being defeated by Democrats.
Several candidates addressed the crowd, such as Jim War, a Kansas House Representative in the 86th district. Elizabeth Bishop will be running for House district 88.
"I'm going to win," she said confidently. She is running against Joseph Scapa, a Tea Party Republican.
Also running and in attendance is Dan Giroux who is running against Mike Pompeo, one of the most militaristic candidates to ever hold an office in
. He is so pro-military that he has
neglected his non-military constituencies. He is a major imperialist lackey and
getting rid of him will be a great achievement. Kansas
