Will the KS GOP Really Lose Seats in the Statehouse on Tuesday?


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Top Republicans say Tuesday's elections could cost them a few seats in the Kansas House and reduce the influence of the chamber's GOP conservatives. Several Republicans said yesterday (THUR) that this year's redrawing of political district boundaries appears to have hurt the GOP in some places, especially in the Wichita area. And Republican Governor Sam Brownback said he doesn't know how much power his fellow conservatives will have after Tuesday's voting. Republicans now hold a 92-33 majority in the House. The powerful Kansas Chamber of Commerce counts 76 as conservatives.Meanwhile, some Democrats questioned whether Republicans are hoping to lower expectations for Tuesday's outcome so the GOP can claim victory even if it loses a few seats. State Democratic Chairwoman Joan Wagnon won't predict the future balance of power in the House.
