153,000 Kansas Have Voted in Advance
October 31, 2014

(AP) – More registered Republicans have cast early votes in Kansas than voters affiliated with other parties in the state.

GOP officials are trumpeting the data as a signal that Gov. Sam Brownback and U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts will be re-elected Tuesday.

Democrats and independent Senate candidate Greg Orman’s campaign say many Republicans are breaking with the party’s top nominees.

Recent polling has suggested close races between Roberts’ and Orman, and between Brownback and Democratic challenger Paul Davis.

Nearly 153,000 people had voted as of Thursday.

Of those, 54.2 percent were registered Republicans, 30.6 percent were Democrats and 14.9 percent were unaffiliated. Among the state’s 1.74 million registered voters, 44.6 percent are Republicans, 24.5 percent are Democrats and 30.2 percent are unaffiliated. Libertarians comprise less than 1 percent of either group.

K-State Coach Endorses Roberts
October 30, 2014

(AP)– Beloved Kansas State University football coach Bill Snyder has endorsed Sen. Pat Roberts for re-election and is appearing in a new television ad for the three-term Republican incumbent.

Roberts’ campaign launched the statewide spot Thursday, just five days before the election and with Roberts locked in a tight race with independent candidate and wealthy Olathe businessman Greg Orman.

Snyder is highly respected and has largely remained aloof from politics. His 6-1 Wildcats are the only unbeaten team in the Big 12 and are generating buzz because they’re ranked ninth for a national football playoff spot.

Snyder describes Roberts in the ad as a good friend and “as good as it gets for the state.”

Orman has argued that Roberts is part of the gridlock in Washington.
