MORE DEETS ON THE EPIC MODERATE VS. CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN KANSAS FIGHT
There's a fight for the political soul of Kansas that hasn't earned much attention from local mainstream media.
Also, here's a better look at the people pushing Paul Davis . . .
Kansas Moderate Republicans Try To Fight Back With New Group
Huff Post offers far more deets than any local news source on this Kansas ruckus: "A group of more than 60 moderate Republicans, mostly former state legislators, formed Traditional Republicans for Common Sense in an effort to regain control of the state Republican Party. An ongoing Republican Party civil war in Kansas has pitted conservative Republicans against a moderate faction; conservative Republicans knocked out moderates from the state Senate during the 2012 primary, giving conservatives control of both legislative bodies and the governorship."
As always, Republican discontent mostly originates from Johnson County rhinos with the deep pockets to push their decidedly "mainstream" politics that's virtually indistinguishable from most cocktail party chatter. And that kinda explains why Dead Tree Media newsies are so "excited" about the Paul Davis campaign.
Still . . . The Kansas Republican Slapfight makes for decent entertainment given that the pattern here is that RINOS usually withdraw quickly as soon as things start to get serious and more strident Republicans start getting angry. On the other hand, the typical hope is that big money will silence dissent . . . Which often works.
Wondering if this ruckus will inspire Congressman Kevin Yoder to go for another nude swim in order to relax for a bit.
