Marshal Defeats Huelskamp

Joe Denoyer - August 3, 2016 1:45 am

A doctor backed by agriculture and business groups has defeated U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp in the Republican primary to represent a district spanning much of central and western Kansas.
Great Bend obstetrician Roger Marshall won the tough contest against Huelskamp in Tuesday’s primary, making him the strong favorite to take the seat in November.
Marshall’s supporters argued Huelskamp’s combativeness has harmed the district. Huelskamp lost his seat on the House Agriculture Committee in 2012 and farm groups turned against him.
Huelskamp is a tea party favorite with a national profile from clashing with GOP leaders over farm and budget legislation. He was a critic of former House Speaker John Boehner.
There is no Democratic candidate. Clifton farmer and educator Alan LaPolice is poised to run as an independent.
