United States Senate election in Kansas, 2010

From dKosopedia

Elected in 1996 to the Senate seat once held by Bob Dole and a former candidate for his party's presidential nomination in 2008, incumbent conservative Republican Sam Brownback has stated he will not run in 2010 because of self-imposed term limits. Kansas is one of the most Republican states in the nation, as no Democrat has been elected to serve the Sunflower State in the Senate since 1938. Brownback currently has a 50% approval rating. <ref>[1]</ref> Possible successors to Brownback include Republican Congressmen Jerry Moran, Todd Tiahrt, Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh, Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, State Representative Lee Tafanelli, State Senator Derek Schmidt. For the Democrats, popular Governor Kathleen Sebelius, who is restricted from running for reelection because of term limits, would be the strongest candidate, but Railroad Engineer Lee Jones and former Congressman Dan Glickman are also possible candidates.
