The primary election in Kansas is just over a week away. Some of the most hotly-contested races are for the Kansas Senate. A handful of moderate Republican senators have been targeted by conservative challengers - and that could affect the balance of power in the senate. The outcome of the primary will likely determine whether moderates or conservatives control key leadership positions. KPR’s Stephen Koranda spoke with Kansas State Political Scientist Joe Aistrup (A-strup) about the election. In a recent newspaper column, Aistrup called this battle "the mother of all primary elections."
That’s K-State Political Science Professor Joe Aistrup. He was speaking with KPR’s Stephen Koranda. The Kansas primary election is on August 7.
