Blue wave? Kansas Democrats think they have a 'real chance' for U.S. Senate in 2020

TOPEKA -- It has been a seminal year for the Kansas Democrats.

Not only did the party beat out a hard-line conservative for the governor’s office, it also made history by electing Sharice Davids, an openly gay Native American woman, to the House of Representatives, adding to the highest-ever number of women in Congress.

But party leaders say they’re not finished yet. With a long-held Republican Senate seat up for grabs, Kansas Democrats are hoping to capitalize on shifting attitudes and an emboldened voter base in the 2020 election.

and a coalition of moderate republicans working with democrats working together has brought Kansas back. Wholesale abandonment of the GOP by long time GOP voters to democrats has been underway for several years. No doubt some batshit crazy GOP'er will be their nominee for senate (Kobach) and he is easily beatable.
