Postcards, Shoe Leather Factor in Kansas Elections

A deceptive political postcard used to attack the former president of the Kansas Senate, Steve Morris. Morris, a Republican from Hugoton, lost his bid for re-election.

In the summertime, the word “postcards” may evoke charming images of scenic vacation spots. But for candidates in the heat of the Kansas campaign season, postcards can be a threat, sent by an opponent to voters’ mailboxes, depicting skeletons in the closet or… ugly half-truths. As part of our Kansas elections project, Amy Jeffries reports.
