I've long called my home the Reddest Red State, but that is no longer the case. Following the defeat of Jim Ryun yesterday, Kansas now has:
- One Democratic Governor,
- Two Republican Senators, and
- Two Democrats in Congress out of four:
(Map adapted from NationalAtlas.gov's Map Maker.)
- A school board which believes in evolution (for now),
- And a Democratic Attorney General (which probably has Vern Miller spinning in his grave).
OK, the Gov has a Republican family name and the AG is a renegade moderate GOPer, but still. Maybe the book for this campaign will be We're Not in Kansas Anymore.
Oops, the previous version of the map had the 2nd and 3rd districts switched. Oh, well, it's not like I never published a paper with an erratum before.
