Clean Sweep for the Kansas GOP
Before Tuesday's election, Kansas Republicans controlled all statewide offices, both U.S. Senate seats and all four congressional seats. And they still do.
Republican Senator Pat Roberts earned another six-year term in office; his fourth term in the upper chamber - and Governor Sam Brownback was re-elected to a second, four-year term in office.
Republicans also continue to hold majorities in both chambers of the Kansas Legislature.
Republicans were also re-elected to all statewide offices, including Kris Kobach as secretary of state, Derek Schmidt as attorney general and Ron Estes as state treasurer. And Republican Ken Selzer (SELT-zur) has been elected as the state's new insurance commissioner.
In addition, all four Republican members of Congress were re-elected on Tuesday: Tim Huelskamp, Lynn Jenkins, Kevin Yoder and Mike Pompeo.
