Democrats Challenging 2 of 4 Congressional Seats

KSCB News - June 18, 2012 8:20 am

Kansas Democrats hope voters unhappy with congressional partisanship will oust incumbents from the state’s all-Republican U.S. House delegation. Yet congressional races could be difficult for them in GOP-leaning Kansas. Democrats haven’t fielded candidates against freshman GOP congressmen Tim Huelskamp and Kevin Yoder. Huelskamp represents the 1st District of western and central Kansas. Yoder serves in the 3rd, centered on the Kansas City area. Still, three Democrats are running in the 2nd District of eastern Kansas, represented by two-term Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins. They are Scott James Barnhart, of Ottawa; Bob Eye, of Lawrence, and the Reverend Tobias Schlingensiepen (schling-ehn-SEE’-pehn) of Topeka. In the 4th District of south-central Kansas, two Wichita residents, Esau Freeman and Robert Tillman, are running as Democrats for the right to challenge freshman Congressman Mike Pompeo.
