Kansas court decision lets Democrat off Senate ballot despite GOP efforts

21. října 2014 v 23:42
The Republicans' bid to regain control of the US Senate suffered a major blow on Thursday when the Kansas Supreme Court issued a ruling widely-viewed as a boost to an independent challenger in the state.The ruling compels Kansas's Republican secretary of state to remove the name of a Democratic candidate from ballot papers ahead of November's elections.Republican strategists had wanted Chad Taylor to remain on the ballot, hoping it would divide the large block of Kansas voters opposed to the state's three-term incumbent senator, Pat Roberts. Instead, the decision is expected to lead to Democrats switching allegiance to the independent, Greg Orman, who according to one recent poll already enjoys a seven point lead over Roberts in the deep-red state. http://asepoka.ru/10-2013/index4.html
