For the first time in more than 30 years, a Democrat is running in every Kansas Senate district. But their fellow left-leaning Kansans may not be voting for them – at least not in August. KCUR’s Elle (“Ellie”) Moxley takes us to Reno County, where a number of Democrats changed their party affiliation so they could vote in the Republican primary.
