Kansas Rep. Roger Marshall is projected to defeat former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach in the Republican Senate primary, according to the Associated Press, calming Republicans' worst fears about putting a seat in a deep red state in play this fall with the Senate majority contested.
Marshall was the favored candidate of many party leaders to take on Democratic state Sen. Barbara Bollier in November — in what some strategists believe may still be a competitive general election.
Marshall and Bollier, a former Republican and retired anesthesiologist, will compete for the seat currently held by GOP Sen. Pat Roberts, who is retiring.
No we didn’t get the GOP candidate we wanted but it says a lot that Moscow Mitch had to spend a lot of money to prevent Kris Kobach from winning and help Roger Marshall win. FYI, Bollier was never pinning her hopes on Kobach winning. In fact, she nailed it with this Tweet:
It doesn't matter who our opponent in #KSSen is, we know that theyÃ¢ÂÂll be a hyper-partisan working to take healthcare coverage from thousands of Kansans in the middle of a pandemic. ThatÃ¢ÂÂs for sure.
Let’s move forward now to the general election and fight like Hell to win this seat. Click below to donate and get involved with Bollier and Biden’s campaigns:
