Wanted: New Reddest Red State

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:

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.

From KU in 1970, he looked pretty Republican to me, but I've forgotten a lot of things since then.

Today he'd be a Republican, but thanks for the correction.
