It was a good night for incumbents in the major Kansas primary races. Governor Sam Brownback coasted through his party's election Tuesday night, as did Secretary of State Kris Kobach. KPR's J. Schafer has this wrap-up of those two races.


In the race for Congress... all four Kansas Republican incumbents have advanced. Tim Huelskamp, Lynn Jenkins and Mike Pompeo made it through contested primaries. Kansas Congressman Kevin Yoder was unopposed.

On the Democratic side, four candidates have advanced. Margie Wakefield, James Sherow (shuh-ROE), Kelly Kultala (CULL-tuh-luh) and Perry Schuckman are all hoping to capture a Kansas seat for Democrats in the U.S. House.
