Tiahrt: We need to send a rock solid conservative to Washington
07/29/2010

Vicki Tiahrt talks about her husband Todd's upcoming U.S. Senate race.

Vicki Tiahrt, the wife of U.S. Congressman Todd Tiahrt visited Liberal and the KSCB studios last week. Vicki has been traveling all over the state to campaign for her husband who is running for a spot in the U.S. Senate. Tiahrt's opponent in the Republican primary is U.S. Congressman Jerry Moran.

Vicki's role in this campaign has been focused on talking to the women around the state. She has found that women are fed up with the way the government is doing things.

"This should be the land of fiscal responsibility and right now it's not," Vicki said.

Vicki said her husband was working for Boeing when he decided to get involved in politics. She said what prompted him to run was that their state representative at the time had come to their door and they voted for him because he seemed nice and made the effort to come to their door. However, after studying up on him Todd realized they weren't being properly being represented and this motivated him to run and make a difference.

Todd's current race with Moran has been more than colorful with both campaigns pulling out all the stops. Endorsements have been one of those, and Vicki is very pleased with her husband's endorsements. Todd has endorsements from Governor Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Dick Morris, and Karl Rove from Fox News. He also has the endorsement of the Tea Party Express, the Kansas NRA, and most recently the former campaign manager of Jerry Moran.

Vicki also went right after Moran's voting record calling him out for voting to raise taxes 12 times, giving civil trials to terrorists, allowing bilingual ballots, and voting to not build a fence to help stop illegal immigration. Vicki also added that Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo, who has spent his life fighting illegal immigration, recently switched his endorsement from Jerry to Todd stating that Jerry has not been honest with him about his record on illegal immigration.

The most recent poll in this race shows Moran with a 14 point lead, but Vicki said she doesn't believe it and feels the race is very close, and that Todd could even be ahead.

Vicki admits primaries are tough because it is in a way a fight within the family. However, she said more then ever that Kansans need to send a "rock hard conservative" who is also a fighter to Washington.

The Republican primary will be on Tuesday, August 3.
